For my modules, I simply don’t keep generated files in source control. As you say, it’s

`distclean` runs `distcheck`? WHU?

I have used `realclean` for, oh, probably a decade now. Definitely better. I also have this
Git alias to get rid of all superfluous files:

So `git cl` does its thing. Must be some way to do that in SVN, too. I noticed a lot of generated
files there were obviously not svn:ignored.
