I don't know why it got wrong permissions (copy via a FAT file system
or something like that?), but it is a good idea to regenerate all
these files before generating a tarball. This is done with

  autoreconf -f -i

In MPFR, we have an script that does that and some other
things, like restoring the INSTALL and doc/texinfo.tex files, which
are part of the repository.
