It sounds like I misunderstood something here. These files are used only by autoconf to generate configure? They are not needed by libtool itself in order to drive the compilation? If so, I agree that it seems better not to check them in, though I think we do need the empty directory in the repository and the tar-ball? Otherwise the reconfiguration process seemed to fail.
Thanks for the explanation.
