Makefile (and Makefile.in) are generated files.

This redundancy does not come from their ultimate origin, Makefile.am at the top level.

I have to assume the redundancy is being introduced by Makefile.am files in subdirectories.

Maybe someone who understands the build system better (like Bertrand) can speak to this.
