In trying to move from a srcdir build to an objdir build (in the same tree), I found that "gmake -f client.mk cleansrcdir" doesn't seem to blow away any _xpidlgen directories.
Didn't catch the moving-from-srcdir-to-objdir aspect before... Isn't a fix to just Not Do That? :)
No. cleansrcdir is supposed to work for exactly this situation: it's supposed to return a tree to it's virgin state so that I can do just this sort of change without having to checkout a fresh tree.
CC'ing cls, slamm, as I don't think I'll get this quite right.
Works for me. I just did a "./configure; make export" in the srcdir and verified that the _xpidlgen dirs existed. Then I did a "make -f client.mk cleansrcdir" and the _xpidlgen dirs were removed with the other generated files. _xpidlgen is removed as part of the distclean target.
Hmmm. Maybe I was wrong about what was going on. I suspect I must have done the "cleansrcdir" step after trying to transition over to the objdir state.
