That is true. But as I explained when the comment was done the first time (and I
never got any answer), these files are generated in every exported directory.
Because the genwqe directory is now exported, the corresponding '..install.cmd'
and '.install' are generated.
for more details.

In other words, these files are there because some new directories are exported.
If those directories were added to the 'header-y' variable, the result would be
the same.
