Would you prefer something like this:

pm_bin_SCRIPTS = pm-action

bin_SCRIPTS = pm-is-supported

dist_bin_SCRIPTS = on_ac_power

sbin_SCRIPTS = pm-powersave

script_in_files = pm-action.in pm-is-supported.in pm-powersave.in

CLEANFILES =  $(script_in_files:.in=)

EXTRA_DIST = $(script_in_files)

The  $(script_in_files:.in=) trick has the additional benefit, that
EXTRA_DIST and CLEANFILES are always in sync.


Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
