Possibly true, but try to keep a clean separation between Autoconf and
Automake.  Autoconf shouldn't have to know about removing files and such
things.  Just provide a list of files that you generate and then the
makefile author/generator can decide what to do with it.

After all, the problem really only affects a few temp files potentially
left over from configure or config.status.  All other files are already
accounted for.  Don't try to change everything.
