  +			<p>Yes. In general <code>make clean</code> or <code>make dist-clean</code> can't be relied upon for clean sources. Especially when you have manually hacked the sources or applied patches to it you should first try again with a fresh unpacked package. The only exception to this rule is the linux kernel, which requires its sources to be present when third-party modules, such as the NVidia drivers, are needed.</p>
