Actually autoreconf is meant to do this. But rather dumbly to

This will cause the (bad) paths to be overwritten on
"autoreconf -f -i -s" (I've just tried it). I still think they
should be taken out of svn, or (if we insist on having them there
for people who don't want to run autoreconf) have them as
the "autoreconf -f -i" versions (i.e. the files themselves,
not the symbolic links). Thinking about it I would have thought
the latter is the thing to do.


Surely if autoreconf will re-create the file the best solution is the delete them from SVN? That's certainly what we've done in other places, to be honest I have no idea why I checked all the files in anyway.
