In fact our dependencies are simple enough that make clean is
almost never needed.

Paul said Pierre needed to make clean because he ran
apparently ./configure instead of ./autogen.sh, which made the make
system fail to detect rebuilds needed by matcher_parser_parse.y changes.

On CVS, ./autogen.sh must be run each time one wants to change
configure's options, for example, not ./configure.
