It's been a long time since I downloaded an emacs distribution tarball, but I
think they always came with .elc files. Given this, neither `make clean' nor
`make distclean' should delete them. A CVS checkout is _not_ a distribution.
[And I think `make clean' should never delete them, because they are too
expensive to recreate from scratch -- much more expensive than just
recompiling all the C code]
Would you like fries with that?
