Well, it seems quite widespread to copy autotools config.sub and
config.guess files from autotools-dev in clean (I personally prefer to
do that in configure, and to remove config.{sub,guess,log,status} in
clean, so that diff files are cleaner, but I guess that might be
personal taste), are you referring to that, or to something else?
