Yes, but that rule of thumb is at odds with another rule of thumb: "Never commit generated files to a source code repository." And considering that "autoreconf -i" does a perfect job of regenerating all of the files I listed, I'm willing to break the GCS rule.

My project uses maintainer-mode and I always check these generated files into the source code repository. The end user might not be able to produce a working set of files based on whatever random autotools they have on their system.
