Just about every project out there works like this.  If you are dealing
with the CVS version, you are expected to have a basic set of tools
installed.  autoconf, automake and libtool, for example.  Of course, when
it comes time to roll a public tarball, these scripts are generated and
included in any such tarball.  Putting generated files into CVS is a huge
hassle, especially when the tool that generates these files differs
slightly across platforms or between versions.  You end up with a
neverending stream of commits on these files.
