Where is the clutter? Every automake package still has that file.

They are small text files with important information, requiring less storage space than other automake files retained in the directory. :)

I don't find those files on my local GIT repository for the cmake converted packages. The current cmake conversions took place before the SVN to GIT migration and I suspect those files are not part of GIT.
