If you want to modify files in automake, then you are doing development,

itself, there may be special things to do. In any case, nothing should
be added to the tarball that isn't required for installation.

From where did you get that rule? It doesn't go very well with the fact that automake by default adds, and other .m4 files to the tarball. Those files will never be useful for a pure ./configure; make; make install, but as soon as you wanna fix a bug or just modify the package you'll be happy those files are around.
