Currently, .elc files are not really a problem for me: I do
remove them with a simple combination of find and rm.

But this doesn't need my requirements: the Debian packaging scheme
generates a diff between the pristine tree and the set of files
added by the packaging; since autogenerated files are no part of
the pristine tree, they'd be considered as packaging-specific
which I don't want to.

Basically, I'd need a bootstrap-clean target that would clean any file
generated by the bootstrap (both .elc and autogenerated .el).  I
didn't find anything do this.
