There are three -- two of them are .cvsignore'd.  Should we just
.cvsignore the third one, or remove it from the build, or ...?

libpq has the three of them in .cvsignore so I guess this is what ecpg
should do as well.

The weird thing is that the three files are generated for me
unconditionally (of course, I didn't issue a specific make call).
