There have been a few occasions when I've had to do a "make extraclean".
Each time, it was because some generated file was not marked as generated in
the Makefile. Then, on upgrading the containing package, the file would not
get regenerated from the new sources. Each time I have discovered something
like that, I've bugged the maintainer to fix the Makefile. Maybe there are
no cases like this left. To be sure, somebody needs to:
(1) build all of the packages in a fresh CVS checkout;
(2) do a "make distclean" there; and
(3) diff against another fresh CVS checkout.
