Don't distribute auto*tools output;do distribute autoreconf input

I want the people that receive my tarball to do autoreconf. Their system's 
autoconf-archive may be more up-to date than mine.

What is the best way to tell automake not to distribute (i.e. put in tarball), 
all the files created by autoreconf, ./configure?

I especially do not want to distribute aclocal.m4 or files that contain it's 
info. I want the build system to get up-to-date files from its autoconf-archive 

I note these files are usually distributed by default, even though no dist_ 
statement is asking for them.

Will it work to put the unwanted files in nodist_prog_SOURCES?
Is there a canonical way to do this?
