The top-level Makefile.in documents what each of these targets does,
so "make extraclean" is supposed to be it.  If it falls short, we
should fix it.

I see no problem with the need to run autogen.sh and the configure
script: this target is supposed to get you into the state identical to
a fresh checkout, so you do have to start with autogen.sh.
