Thanks for the precisions.
In this case though, a second build will show changes in the diff
outside of debian/ (removed files). I'm likely to upload this diff by
mistake. That's why maybe a first quilt patch that get rid of all
autotools-generated files could help.
Anyway I think the most elegant solution is to fix upstream directly,
gonna do that instead ;)
