  forrest clean-site

deletes the generated site content without deleting CVS info.

I've also removed the dependency that the default "site" target had on 

It means that running


will not delete the current files in ./build/site/**

This does not mean that I encourage anyone to put files manually in 
./build/site/** (should not be needed anymore now that all files are 
linkable and copied), but that this will eliminate the deleting phase 
that takes some (small?) time.
