I object to the approach in sugar-toolkit-0.88. It is overly
complicated. I think making use of dpkg-source is better: just remove
the files on clean, and dpkg-source will ignore them. The kannel-sqlbox
approach is better: moving files out of the way pre-build and restore
them on clean (which is what we do in csound too).
