Why?  (This is an honest question.)

AFAICS this is an optimization issue only, not a bug per se.
I haven't measured, but I bet such an optimization would
not improve "make clean" time even measureably.
Prove me wrong and we may have a case.  ;-)

Hmm, maybe the code will get faster if we avoid the sed
script when $(EXEEXT) is empty ... will look into that.

Thanks for the report.
