I don't see a clear advantage of removing this stuff from the tarball
(except for the .cvsignore files).  It makes the tarball a little
smaller and removes a few files unnecessary for building the software
but at the same time increases complexity of maintenance for the
developers, unless, of course, the stuff in can be boiled
down to something really trivial.

I'd just fix the `auctex', `preview', and `dist' targets in
doc/, let the `dist' target in the top remove
.cvsignore files, and merge the files.  But if you really
want to go down the road of your proposal, feel free to do so.
