Hubert Feyrer sez:
 * Heh - ``by''... 
 * No, let "make" (or "make install" or "make package") run "make clean" by
 * default. (RPM does this to ensure it starts out with a clean dir, which I
 * consider a good thing - given that one can switch that off :)

Assuming, of course, that the "make clean" is done prior to "make package",
and/or that it is done AFTER "make install", else the obvious frustrating
loop ensues.


America is quite possibly the only country to go from barbarism to
decadence without the requisite intervening period of civilisation.
