To avoid nuking more than we want, we could replace elisp-* with
something like "elisp-? elisp-??".

It is an issue for building the ELisp manual as a separate package,
the way it was before we bundled it with Emacs.  Then the Info files
were generated in place, so maintainer-clean deleted them.

No, there's no need to remove $(infodir)/elisp-* more than once.
Instead, I suggest to replace elisp-* with "elisp-? elisp-??".
