Not sure what you mean by "standard"; there are no predefined targets
that come with GNU make.

There are some conventions, and a very common one is that "clean" will
clean up any derived objects created by an invocation of "make".

There's no common target "cleandir" that I'm aware of, so we can't
suggest exactly what it might mean.

Why don't you just look at the makefile and see?
