Yeah, that's deliberate: those files are shipped in distribution
tarballs (so that tarball users don't have to have bison/flex/perl
to build from a source tarball).  So they need to be made in the
source tree.  Since they are platform-independent this isn't any
big problem for the normal uses of out-of-tree building.  You could
get rid of them I believe by doing a "make maintainer-clean", but
for testing purposes I suspect that's just a waste of cycles.  When
the underlying files haven't changed, there's no reason to regenerate
these files.
