Alternatively one could try to use "automake --foreign"
instead of "automake --gnu".  The automake manual states

  `foreign'
     Automake will check for only those things which are absolutely
     required for proper operations.  For instance, whereas GNU
     standards dictate the existence of a `NEWS' file, it will not be
     required in this mode.  The name comes from the fact that Automake
     is intended to be used for GNU programs; these relaxed rules are
     not the standard mode of operation.

Maybe this avoids these empty files.
