Slow but sure ...

For some of the OSs the time is about the same if the directory is
already cleaned, while for others (e.g. OS-X) the time improves
considerably if the directory is already clean.

Here's a first patch I'm merging to master.  It speeds up removal of the
"so_locations" files, getting me 30% faster 'make clean' overall with
your package.

We will all appreciate this speedup. I bet that there is much more than 30% speedup in the case that object files are accessed via NFS. The timings I posted were for local access.
