During the course of a regular build, I have a program execute which creates a dir to store output files in. I'd like to be able to add a rule to distclean, without having to manually edit I got the impression, from the documentation, that one could overload the distclean target. So I whipped up a quick rule for distclean-local and did this in my (foo is the generated directory):

     rm -fr foo

distclean: distclean-local

If this isn't the right way, does anyone have a suggestion on how I might do this? I'd like to be able to have the directory removed when users type `make distclean`, rather then `make distclean-local`. Thanks in advance!
