I don't want to "git clean", as I have all sorts of interesting residue stored
that I don't want to lose and don't want to move elsewhere. I don't want to
build in-tree, that's not as convenient when I test different configure
arguments or platforms (sometimes concurrently) using the same git tree. I just
want VPATH to work.
