Hmm. Yeah, I was thinking it might be more common than ordinary munging
due to something like an interrupted "git clean -x". But given that:

  1. As far as I can tell, it is not a situation that can happen through
     regular use of checkout/make/etc, and...

  2. We have zero reports of it happening in practice (I only discovered
     it while explicitly trying to break the Makefile), and...

  3. It is just one of many possible breakages, all of which can be
     fixed by "git clean -dx" if you suspect issues...

let's just leave it. Thanks for a sanity check.
