What's the point of committing them at all?  They're what's produced by
the committer's particular version of auto*.  It's like me checking in
main.o -- it reflects my compiler chain.

Anyone expecting to build from CVS should also be prepared to have
suitable auto* tools.  The tar files of source releases contain the
auto* output so that's useful for posterity and debugging build bug
