Those files are not generated, but if they're not there, they are
copied from the local (potentially out of date) system.

What's in the repository are most likely more up-to-date than what's
on your local system.  You can check the date code at the top of each
file to check.

Mostly this matters when we build tarballs, since what's in the tree
is what goes into the tarball.  The reason we like the most
up-to-date, is that they support more system configurations.

You could make the problem "invisible" on your end by adding appropriate
entries to your own ~/.gitignore  :-)
