Well yes. The problem is that we're now adding subdirectories under
tools/libxc, so rm -rf *.o doesn't clean them. The IA64 guys just added
rm -rf ia64/*.o, but we shouldn't need to guess: we already have these
handy variables telling us exactly where all the object files are. If
you prefer, we can add another unconditional rm -rf powerpc64/* in the
IA64 style...
