FYI: FPC make distclean didn't work:

fpc trunk log:
r22621 | joost | 2012-10-12 23:26:16 +0200 (Friday, 12 Oct 2012) | 6 lines

 * For some reason burried in the past a 'make distclean' in fpc's root
   is passed to utils as a 'make cleanall' which is an alias for
   The Makefile.fpc did not recognize the 'cleanall' alias because in
   packages 'distclean' is being used. This means that nothing was
cleaned at all.
