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.

Yes, and these added files assist with assuring compliance with the GPL, which requires that all original source files and scripts that the developer needs to build and install the software are included, or otherwise formally made available.
