You can automate this somewhat by doing something like:
make clean-update clean extract
(the "touch" command can be one line without the "\", of course).
This tricks the pth package sources to think that pth has already been
re-installed. The final "make update" then deinstalls and re-compiles
everything without re-installing pth.

This won't change, of course. But this way you don't have to manually
compile and install each package.
