These files are intentionally not in .hgignore so that hg purge will clean them up but leave the ones that are more permanent after bootstrapping, i.e. what would go in a tarball, but nothing beyond that.

If you're bothered by the output of configure and make, then build out of source or add the hg ignore patterns to a local hgignore file specified in octave/.hg/hgrc or in your ~/.hgrc.

I recently lost a file because I didn't realize I hadn't added it to hg.  I've tried using "hg status" to see what files I've created, but unfortunately, it shows all the auto-generated configure and build files so I can't find the ones which I myself created.
This patch adds lines to .hgignore to exclude all auto-generated files.
