Do you mean 'maintainer-clean'? I wasn't aware of 'extraclean' and it is
not listed in 'make help'. Help does say about maintainer-clean

'delete almost everything that can be regenerated'

which I think would include those CEDET files (and probably many of the
other files listed in .gitignore). My expectation, which may be wrong,
is that after running 'make maintainer-clean' you would have a really
'clean' repository that would be equivalent to creating a fresh clone. I
guess the key word in the above is 'almost'. 

BTW Stefan was correct. Removing that file fixed the build issue.
