The license and the copyright of these files is pretty much the same all
the time (some details can depend on the date).  However, tracking this
all properly in the copyright files of all packages using Autoconf takes
a huge amount of work.  Is there really no way to redirect all that
effort towards something productive?  For example by declaring at a
central place that these files have the usual license and copyright
unless specified otherwise in debian/copyright, and be done with them?
