Re: [debian-mentors] config.sub and config.guess | .diff.gz bloat

Because they are needed for autoconf et al, and in some cases
the upstream version of them is not suitable to build the package on
your system. I had stumbled upon this right now with Zorp.

They are, but you don't have to copy them actually, as automake -a will
create a symling for you.

I decided to delete all files which can be generated by autoconf
et al in clean: Makefiles, etc. As clean runs before generating the
diff, diff will complain about them missing, but will happily forget
about them. In the build-stamp rule I am reconfiguring them all.
It is the relevant part of the diff to my debian/rules
Note how many files you can get rid of.
(the 'grep -v ++pristine' is because I use gnu arch internally)
