gnulib's support for CVS/Git and 'make dist' is neat.

I have a question about 2 files though:

- 'm4/gnulib-comp.m4' is not mentioned in '.gitignore', so it keeps
  showing up in 'git status', but it's documented as a built file, not
  to be included in the project repository. It could be added in the
  '.gitignore' file.

- 'm4/gnulib-comp.m4' is "meant to be stored in CVS", however it is
  not included in tarballs on 'make dist'. Currently my 'bootstrap'
  script just calls 'gnulib-tool --import' and rely on
  'gnulib-comp.m4' to fetch to appropriate modules. People who
  download a project tarball and want to refresh the autotools files
  will want to run 'bootstrap', which will only import the 'dummy'
  module in this case.

Is this done on purpose, or does this need to be fixed?
