The xfce4-battery-plugin_0.2.0.orig.tar.gz has CVS directories in it.
Does the orig.tar.gz for diskperf have them too?

Interesting but yeah because otherwise they will break on arm at least.

Well if you did the autotool magic then it would have redone all the m4
gubbins anyway so I'd have thought if it built after you did that that
it's fine.  Is this a new upstream?  You might find that they've
incorporated it.

If you're worried check the diff.gz for a section about acinclude.m4 in
the old plugin package and see if similar macros are included anywhere
in yours.  If they are you're fine, if they're not and they're not used
your fine.  I tend to think that as it's passed ./configure you should
be fine anyway but I've not looked.
