Hmmm I think I didn't make myself clear. So just to make sure, before I cause
confusion: The files are indeed distributed validaly. The "problem" is that
they are not cleaned by `make distclean`. I intentionally made them clean only
on `make maintainer-clean`. When `make distcheck` sees they don't get cleaned
by `make distclean`, it produces an error.
