	If you did something in that directory to create the files
 (like run make depend), then yes, files shall be left over, and you
 should manually delete them.

	I had thought of having the postrm remove the dir on purge,
 but that seemed a trifle too risky; the postinst in that case would
 be making assumptions it has no right to make (namely, that it is
 safe to delete those files).

	Not unless the libc dependency changes.
