Do we really want to add special cases like this? There are all kinds of mysterious errors triggered by unclean SRCDIR, I don't think it is worth adding this specific hack.

I am not sure. We have done this sort of thing before, for other files under src/etc, and I think it's reasonable to treat src/etc differently from the rest of the source tree because etcupdate and postinstall may run "make" in src/etc without the user being aware that their source directory is being polluted.

On the other hand, if we can get postinstall and etcupdate to run "make clean" afterwards, then I'd be happier for this and similar special cases to be removed.
