what i meant is to do a re-import with "git-import-orig --filter

i was hesitant to do that, as i thought one was not supposed to do
_anything_ outside of debian/.
for modification of the upstream sources, we have patch systems like quilt.

following my argumentation above, that one is not supposed to change the
contents of the sources (outside the debian/ directory), my (somewhat
clumsy) suggestion was to add a
debian/patches/remove_autom4te.patch that would remove the offending
files (and hopefully restore them after the build).
so i am unsure how to proceed...
