Respectively, I think you're significantly over-solving this problem.
Just document somewhere what files can possibly be created and let the
package author do what they wish with them, write a make distclean rule or
whatever.  If Automake wants to include that stuff, they can read the
Autoconf documentation to see what to remove.
