Packaging .c files in a non-devel package

Hello,

I’m currently working on a Fedora package for make-it-quick (<a href="https://github.com/c3d/make-it-quick" title="https://github.com/c3d/make-it-quick">https://github.com/c3d/make-it-quick</a>), a make-only build system with basic auto-configuration.

rpmlint complains about shipping .c files in a non -devel package. The package does contains several small .c files that are used for autoconfiguration.

One option would be to rename the package as “make-it-quick-devel”, but that seems a bit redundant given that the whole point of the package is to be a development tool.

Another option would be to rename the files to use some custom extension for configuration sources.
