Why not just recommend "make maintainer-clean"?

I think that using a fresh checkout is a good idea to ensure that you
don't have any other changes in your tree (which would then get
committed silently and accidentally); but the reason given here is
pretty bogus.

BTW, shouldn't the sequence of steps be first download and then change
into that directory?
