so you do it "by hand"? if so, maybe additional commands to
get-orig-source would be nice, together with all the other commands
you did for removal of files from the export

since debian/rules clean is executed before than configure, those
files would be removed and then readded in configure, so the "cp"
problem should not occur.

No, but neither adding them "hiddenly"; please note that
get-orig-source target won't create the exact same tarball (except for
dates or other minor probs) you're proposing me; it might be better to
add any additional operations you did manually into that target, but
then you clearly need to state the needs for autotools-deb in
README.source, since to complete that target, the package needs to be
