I noticed this too.  The reason for this is that, if xc/xmakefile exists,
the base xsrc Makefile calls the World target in it instead of xc/Makefile,
causing the build to fail because of other missing Makefiles (which were
removed in the make clean step).

There does happen to exist an Everything target in xc/xmakefile which looks
like it's made for rebuilding over an already-built (and possibly cleaned)
tree.  Next time I do an xsrc built, I'll try modifying the base Makefile to
use this, and if it works, I'll send-pr the change.
