Sure. I'm currently working on an emacs-snapshot Debian package
which will make us easier to prepare upcoming stable releases
and to find problems with the build system ASAP.

I'm building it from a tarball I do generate from make-dist
and every time I clean the package, I remove .elc files
as well as autogenerated .el ones.

There is a rationale for removing them: we usually apply
patches (which may modify .el files) prior to bootstrapping
emacs, so we need to regenerate them anyway.

I hope I answered your question.
