Paul, do you remember the logic behind this?

commit cf2f54c4e3d8adb26e3f4b8e9e51364165877444

The motivation for that commit was to support the GNU idea that we should ship source code instead of generated code; in this case macuvs.h was being generated from IVD_Sequences.txt, a file that was not part of the repository and not shipped, contrary to the GNU ideal. The email thread prompting that commit is rooted here:


In that commit I wasn't attempting to also follow the principle that we shouldn't commit sources that can be generated automatically by standard maintainer tools. In hindsight I should have done that as well, and removed src/macuvs.h from the repository while I was at it. I just now attempted to fix this by installing the attached patch into master.
