See the link suggested by Ralf about the autotools,

It provides an explanation of this (page 151 of my dead tree copy)

"Sometimes you have to distribuyte files that are not covered 
automatically. It is easy to add addtion files to a distribution; just 
list them in the macro 'EXTRA_DIST'.

Are you just trying to understand how the auto-tools process works,
or are you trying to do something else?

Best regards
