[Lazarus] make clean is leaving more than 20MB stuff behind (this number is after compression!)

I had related problems with FPC apparently due to fpmake not cleaning
See message thread titled
FPC x86+x64 win trunk failing to build (using fpcup): 2 different errors
from September 20

I modified my fpcup program to recursively delete all .ppu, .a, .o files
in any directory with the right "cpu-os signature" (my term)

Some of these .a and/or .o are provided by svn so I did an svn update
after that.

Don't know if this also applies to Lazarus...
In any case, for Lazarus fpcup employs the same strategy but also
deletes .or and .res files in the "cpu-os signature" directories
