Maybe it isn't ok to ship generated_lists, I don't know.  Sascha, the guy
who wrote the build system says it doesn't matter because it only gets
used when building the configure script.  If that is true, and I have no
reason to believe it isn't, we could just not ship it and be perfectly
happy.  The rest of the files are absolutely necessary.  This is one of
the drawbacks to using libtool and autoconf instead of a home-rolled
