Subject Re: make clean isn't

No way!  no make clean in Configure... I regularly edit Configuration,
re-Configure and do a "find . -name \*.o | xargs touch; rm modules.o".  I
can't stand everything rebuilding when I just need to test another module. 

So what happens to me is that I edit Configure like this a lot because I
test various module configs and various command line options, and so I end
up with turd .o files lying around.

Also the original PR that caused me to make that change to make clean (to
rm *.o) was that a fellow was using NFS mounted sourced and did a
"./Configure" on solaris, built, then went to IRIX "./Configure", make
clean, build... and I forget which file it was, but one of the .o files
stuck around and messed things up.
