Hmm... yes, those files are derived and get overwritten when configure is run.

Although it is not totally clean, there have been situations where people find the derived files useful when configure doesn't work. Notably on Microsoft OS's. That said, we can change this.

But how would you like to handle? I can change this in git. There could be a patch on Debian (and others) to remove those derived files, or we could fix and git and push out a new release.

This breaks i.e. packaging efforts where the caller expects distclean target to be equivalent to the dist tarball.

# mkdir -p a b
# tar jxvf libcdio-0.93.tar.bz2 -C a
# tar jxvf libcdio-0.93.tar.bz2 -C b
# cd b/libcdio-0.93 && ./configure && make distclean
# cd -
# diff -r a b
