config.* in the diff?


I am interested in becoming a Debian Developer, but am having a problem
with one of my first packages.  The skeleton was generated using
dh_make, and contains the following lines:

	rm -f build-stamp 
	-$(MAKE) distclean
	-test -r /usr/share/misc/config.sub && \
	  cp -f /usr/share/misc/config.sub config.sub
	-test -r /usr/share/misc/config.guess && \
	  cp -f /usr/share/misc/config.guess config.guess

I can see the merit of this: keeping the config.sub and config.guess
files up to date. However, they then appear in the diffs and make the
diffs huge.

For the moment I commented these the cp lines out, and restored the
original files from the tarball. However, what is the "proper" solution
to this?

For anyone interested, the package (desktop-file-utils) is available at
'deb http://www.burtonini.com/debian debian /'
