Which only worked if you were pulling from git.  Most gpsd builders
build from the tarball.

The new way means .gitignore is simple and a bunch of gnarly env.Clean()
calls will go away.

I love it when a large change leads to many fewer LOC.

I should have been clear that only one build path had been tested.
Today all the CI jobs also work.

Yeah, all the stuff on the edges needs to be tested and adjusted. "www"
is an important one, but also the release testing, release building,
regression building and more.  But I think the hardest parts are done.
