Thanks for the tip, this is really handy. However, unbelievable as it
is, there are people that don't use Emacs :) As far as I know,
Alain is one of them. 

Besides, even if unwanted noise is easy to delete, it is still
produced. And the time and bandwidth needed to obtain the diff should
not, in my opinion, be ignored.

The problem is not that these are rarely generated. The problem is that
it will suffice for one of us to use slightly different versions of
autotools (and this happens quite often) to make his copies of
Makefile.in's and/or configure differ from those in the repository, and,
consequently to obtain superfluous output from cvs diff.
