I'm not an automake expert, but I don't think so. There are a couple
reasons (correct me when I'm wrong...)
The BUILT_SOURCES is a define that automake recognizes as 'source that
isn't distributed, but built by some means'. That makes it not
distribute those files in a make_dist.
ferite_c is a bunch of dependencies used to rebuild E. Note it has a
couple more files than BUILT_SOURCES.
Maybe I should have done:
BUILT_SOURCES = blah blah blah
ferite_c = $BUILT_SOURCES e_ferite.h e_ferite.c
? (That would be somewhat cleaner, right?)
So, I don't think they are redundant, unless you don't care how strict
the make_dist is in files it includes.
