"make clean" should at least clean everything that "make all" touches.
Except for the final executables. There is no need and it won't work
under windows.
Of course if some directories are renamed the old directories are not
cleaned, but then the other clean commands will not help either.

Since speed does not matter anymore make clean could be extended to
clean more.
