?? Do we still make the Leim tarball?

I see your point.  The target clean is documented as this in
top Makefile.in. 

### `clean'
###      Delete all files from the current directory that are normally
###      created by building the program.  Don't delete the files that
###      record the configuration.  Also preserve files that could be made
###      by building, but normally aren't because the distribution comes
###      with them.

It seems that distclean also should not delete *.elc.  About
maintainer-clean and extraclean, I'm not sure if we should
delete *.elc or not.  As they don't delete lisp/*.elc,
perhaps, it is better not to delete leim/*/*.elc.

Then, only the case that we should delete leim/*/*.elc is at
bootstrapping time.  Is it right?
