The idea is that if the only reason to allow distclean to fail is
because ./Makefile doesn't exist (which is assumed to always cause it
to fail), then simply check if it exists, and run the make
conditionally, in an effort to be assertive, by doing more
fine-grained error checking. If make fails for any other reason, then
*let me know*! If the command doesn't randomly fail, then you simply
don't need to ignore the retval.
