I said it's not a problem because I can use brute force removal
as a workaround.
The problem is about the autogenerated .el files, as I explained

I said in a previous messages that I tried many targets without any
Currently, maintainer-clean doesn't work like you describe since:
- it needs the change I asked for (maintainer-clean depending on
clean, that it) in order to remove autogenerated .el files
- it doesn't clean the 'lisp' directory (both .elc files and
autogenerated ones)
- info files are not cleaned from the info directory (it has been
disabled from man/Makefile.in)
