That's because 'make check' is an exception since you're supposed to run
that as part of the normal installation procedure.

However, the point is that contrib should be separated from the "real"
source.  Perhaps the makefiles aren't even functioning.  Are we going to
guarantee that?  Maybe we should, but it wasn't the case in the past.
And then what's contrib for?

distclean = clean + rm config.status output -- theoretically again :)
