"make distclean" should give you the same tree as when the tarball was

"make maintainer-clean" deletes a bit more than distclean, but it still
leaves "", "./configure", etc.

Even after maintainer clean, you don't need to run more than
        ./configure && make
to build the package.

I think autotools shouldn't even try to support the ``full cleanup''.
What if the ./ (or ./bootstrap) has imported ``config.guess'',
gnulib modules, or whatever?

Automake, autopoint, autoheader could remove the files they generate,
but I doubt its worth the trouble.  Exporting a fresh tree seems much
