Both work. Perhaps the first looks better as the second looks more like
a patchwork. If you're sure the first approach is better overall (i.e.
should work for all packages), feel free to fix dh-make-perl.

Imagine $(MAKE) distclean fails halfway through. Some of the results of
the build target are removed, others are not. This leaves the build in
an inconsistent state - build-stamp is present, but some of the build
results are already removed.
By removing stamp files first, this inconsistency is avoided.
