First of all: git clean -dfx helped in my case.

What should a "make distclean/realclean" do? Up to now I expected a result
according to http://www.gnu.org/software/automake/manual/html_node/Clean.html -
iow delete anything generated by autogen.sh and make.

Obviously that is not the case. After a mesa build with my configuration
parameters (only i915) "make realclean" fails to delete 360 files generated
during the build process, 20 of these are *.h, *.c or *.h files. I´d call that

Granted, a "make clean/realclean/distclean" might fail to delete a stale file
that does not belong to the current version of the sources, but how could that
cause any harm? Such a file should not be referenced in any Makefile and so it
should be simply ignored.
