To pedantic, that only fails on some platforms. The autoconf manual
It is not portable to invoke rm without options or operands. On the
other hand, Posix now requires rm -f to silently succeed when there are
no operands (useful for constructs like rm -rf $filelist without first
checking if ‘$filelist’ was empty). But this was not always portable; at
least NetBSD rm built before 2008 would fail with a diagnostic.
Anyway, looks like a good fix. Thanks.
