Does make distclean work under the new build system?

I'm trying to get the command-line build going again on my PPC Mac, had configured the build using --disable-international, that failed to link, so I'm trying to clean up and now I'm getting errors from make distclean:

        Making distclean in po - No rule to make target 'distclean'.

It shouldn't have changed, but I noticed it didn't work either.

If you are building "out of tree" (by far the best way) then just
remove the directory.

IE to compile do
  mkdir debug
  ( cd debug ; ../configure --my-configure-line )
  ( cd debug ; make )

And to clean it, just do
  rm -rf release

That makes cleaning up really easy, allows you to concurrently maintain
release and debug trees with only one set of source code, etc. etc.
