It was probably my motivation not to install them in the first place as
well because the user already has the files from sources so there is
usually no need to install them.

I've checked systemd and they are installing these files using meson but
GLib for example is not installing them.

After checking other libvirt projects we are not installing this files
using autotools or other build systems.

Taking all of that into account I'm changing my mind and we should not
install these files from sources as well.
