Agreed on the generated C files; thanks, fixed.

I did not do this for man pages, which I have good reason to distribute
despite being generated; they are impossible to regenerate on some
configurations (in practice cross configurations without usable
emulators, where help2man is not usable).  If I do not delete the files
at distclean I see distcheck fail.  Let us prevent this at least for
now; I may want to think of a cleaner solution later.

I support everyone's freedom of mocking any opinion or belief, no
matter how deeply held, with open disrespect and the same unrelented
enthusiasm of a toddler who has just learned the word "poo".
