Dear Maintainer,

While working on the “reproducible builds” effort [1], we have noticed
that 'bibledit-gtk' could not be built reproducibly.

That comes from the inclusion of the Makefile's used for building into
the package. These files seem however not necessary: please consider
removing them from bibledit-gtk-data, for example  with the attached patch.

Alexis Bienvenüe.
