The warning being :

Running automake --gnu  ... 305: required file `./$' not found 305: required file `./$' not found

Causes :

[rossg durban gnet]$ make dist
make: *** No rule to make target `', needed by
`distdir'.  Stop.

I'd recommend leaving them in the distribution. They are only small
files, and they aren't hurting anyone by being included, even if they're
only used by a minority of users. I can't think of a case when they
would not be present, so we don't really need configure tests to check
for them.
