The problem is not that the clean directories touch the installed files.
The problem is that the installation directories and the build
directories are under the *same physical directory*. I am now in the
testing phase of the proposal I made earlier for a new Makefile that
will separate the build and installation directories. Now that the
directories are separate, the clean targets do not touch the
installation directory and there is an uninstall target to remove the
installation files. Hopefully I'll be able to check in the new system
tomorrow for people to test.
