Indeed, not only should generated files never be committed to revision
control for myriad reasons, the autogen.sh should be reverted to the
standard version, and you should use the standard Makefile.am hook for
generating changelogs (look in libXi, for example), so that they get
generated and included with the distribution tarball, rather than
relying on chance and autogen.sh.
