That's not for "non-compiled junk", it's for conditionally compiled
sources that may or may not need to be built.

EXTRA_DIST, to distribute, but not install anywhere. If it's
e.g. HTML docs, I do this:
htmldatadir = $(pkgdatadir)/doc/html
htmldata_DATA = index.html ...
EXTRA_DIST = $(htmldata_DATA) ...
For installed program data files, I'd do something very similar:
xmldatadir = $(pkgdatadir)/xml
xmldata_DATA = foo.xml bar.xml ...
EXTRA_DIST = $(xmldata_DATA)
