dh_make-generated rules call "$(MAKE) distclean" if this package has a
configure file and "$(MAKE) clean" if it hasn't one. If the program
doesn't use autoconf, it's not unlikely that there's no "distclean" target
in the makefile.
A "No" uttered from deepest conviction is better and greater than a
"Yes" merely uttered to please, or what is worse, to avoid trouble.
