Title: #213: Build system refactoring phase 3

pspacek commented:
> autoconf and automake files are not removed (Makefile.in, /config.sub ...)
According to [Automake manual section 13 What Gets 
Cleaned](https://www.gnu.org/software/automake/manual/html_node/Clean.html) we 
must not remove files necessary for `./configure`.

As far as I can tell from testing, make distclean + PR #220 leaves behind only 
files generated by `autoreconf` so we should not remove any of them. It would 
prevent users from running `configure` again.
