Hi David,

Thanks for the fix. A couple of nit-picky comments on the commit itself

I'd put a little more detail in the commit message here:

- c0961e6 introduced a missing slash $(dir)$(LIBNAME)
- cdf1c70a created $(dir)/notmuch.h.gch and neglected to add it to clean

This auxiliary text should be below the "---" line in the email so that
it won't be in the commit message after I do "git am". (As is, I'd have
to do extra work to "git commit --amend" this text away).

As for the actual question, yes, $(dir)/$(LIBNAME) is supposed to be
cleaned and is not getting cleaned. I've got libnotmuch.so.1.{1,2,3,4}.0
all sitting around never cleaned.

Meanwhile, I notice now that "libnotmuch.a" is also wrong, (should be

Clearly we could use some testing of our "make clean" target to ensure
it actually works. Does the Debian stuff not test anything like this?
(Maybe I'm thinking of typical testing done by autoconf/automake's "make
distcheck" that we haven't replicated yet.)
