Yes, I think so too.

Part of the issue is that there are targets which are simply not ported
to  ARM and therefore are missing bits of infrastructure , e.g. mini-os
where one if the clean failures is lack of

However I think it is wrong to tie the clean/distclean of these into the
configurey selection mechanism, i.e. mini-os should know that it only
support x86 (for the minute) and DTRT when called for ARM (which is
likely to be nothing much). Perhaps a stub
extras/mini-os/arch/arm/arch.mk is the answer?

The other case is the kernel distclean, which fails with 
        buildconfigs/mk.linux-2.6-common:32: buildconfigs/src.: No such file or 
but that seems to fail on x86 too. Having disabled it by default so long
ago perhaps the time has come to simply remove this stuff? I don't know
if anyone is still using it -- the test system perhaps?

Or it could be fixed with the below, I think.



build: fix kernel build rules.

Rename mk.linux-2.6-common to common.linux-2.6 so that it does not get
included in the ALLKERNELS logic.

Specify XEN_LINUX_SOURCE for linux-2.6-native, looking at 414614d84e67
and todays linux-2.6-xen.mk I am guessing that hg-clone of the 2.6.18
tree is the expected method. To be honest I didn't even try it...
