make distclean fails for 7.61.1

Hi all,

I noticed a build/cleaup problem with 7.61.1. After building and installing the library I
want to cleanup and do "make distclean". This has always worked fine for earlier versions.
But in 7.61.1 it fails.

Apparently the distclean target in lib/Makefile contains about 150000 rm commands (it
attempts to delete the same files over and over again). Under linux gmake fails with:
"Makefile:927: recipe for target 'distclean-recursive' failed". When cross compiling for
Windows from Linux I get: "Makefile:3557: *** Recipe has too many lines".

I have no knowlegde of autotools so I can't be of any assistence here.
