I looked, but there's nothing to send; the xfsprogs repository doesn't
contain those files.  They're updated by the configure target in
Makefile, which is run as part of ./release.sh via "make dist".  (Good;
this should be as automatic as possible.)

IOW, any new upstream release will contain updated files as long as the
developer who built the release has current libtool etc. installed.  But
of course this should be fixed to auto-update at build time in the
Debian packaging anyway, since we want to be able to port to new
architectures without having to upload lots of new source packages or
take lots of new upstream releases at the same time; it makes life so
much easier.

Cheers,
