Yes.  I think full quotes of such build logs do not need to be quoted
any more (except in case of problems).

Rule of thumb for the clean target:  After

   make -f  debian/rules clean

the directory should be byte identical to the state before you called

As you see I'm back online after arriving here in Southport.  Need to
inspect some mail backlog and chat with people here.
