 Remove only files ignored by git.  This may be useful to rebuild
 everything from scratch, but keep manually created files.

+The optional configuration variable `core.excludesfile` linkgit:git-config[1]

I think linkgit:gitignore[5] is enough. linkgit:gitrepository-layout[5] is a very general documentation, it's not clear to the reader which part
is intended to be read in complement to git-clean, and indeed, the
relevant information is already in linkgit:gitignore[5]. Same for
core.excludesfile which is already documented in linkgit:gitignore[5].

Otherwise, I suspect we'll end-up having the transitive closure of SEE
ALSO in each manpage ...

Concurred.  Thanks.
The improved layout of gitignore in patch 5/8 should cover it. The three links came about because of the initial 'git add' patch 6/8.

I'll update (though probably tomorrow night..).
