If you keep generated files in your version control system, then yes,
I'd do that.  But only then.  I would generally recommend against this
strategy (there are arguments for and against it, see 'info Automake
CVS'; the fact that config.* are not generated does not alter the line
of thought much here).

Yes, that is a good idea...

...not quite, that won't install files over already-present ones.  You
need to use the --force argument for it to do so.
