It turns out that besides the top-level ones there are more copied-from-automake
files in various library dirs - where some of them seem quite outdated actually:

  libffi/mdate-sh
  libjava/classpath/INSTALL
  libjava/libltdl/config.guess
  libjava/libltdl/config.sub
  libjava/libltdl/install-sh
  libjava/libltdl/missing

As they don't seem to make troubles, I prefer to leave them untouched as well.
