For some reason 'distclean' is compiling stuff! I've seen it happen
a few times. Look through the Makefile and see if you can find the
'real' clean target. Or if you can make 'distclean' NOT make (compile)

This is where your 'unrepresentable changes to source' come from.

A 'clean' (and _especially_ 'distclean') should REMOVE stuff, not

My guess is you have to rewrite the Makefile slightly...
