Follow-up Comment #25, patch #9440 (project octave):

I'm trying to clean up files in the various builds, particularly cups, but I'm
finding the post-install and cleanup directives to be very counterintuitive
and quirky.

The big benefit of cleanup AIUI is it only deletes files that are installed by
a particular module, so you can be a bit liberal and delete "/bin/*". The
downside of cleanup is it only deletes files, you can't recursively delete a
directory by name.

OTOH post-install lets me delete anything I want, but now I discover that it
operates on the union of the current build and all previous builds. So if I
try to delete "/app/bin/" in the cups post-install, I have lost gfortran by
the time I get to building Octave.

Now trying to use a combination of the two, cleanup to delete files that are
in directories shared with other modules, like bin, and post-install to clean
up directories that are entirely owned by cups, like /app/lib/cups/.
