Assuming that you mean "files marked as obsolete" when you say "old
files", then I think that "postinstall fix obsolete" should do the right
thing, even if you used custom MK* variables.  This will work best if
you use the same MK* settings every time.

On the other hand, if you build and install with different combinations
of custom MK* variabels every time, then I don't know a recommended way
of deleting files that are excluded from your current build due to MK*
variables, but that are not marked as obsolete.
