It is, yes (or rather, the distribution is distclean by
definition...). The point was that sometimes people with network
drives do

	unpack sources
	rsh anothermachine
	make clean

- which doesn't always work because of config.cache keeping info for
another machine.

Hmm. Waitaminnit... The logic is that HAVE_FINITE is set if you have
finite(). However, if it is defined as a macro, it should obviously
not be declared as a function even if you *do* have it. 

Try commenting out the int finite(double) bit.
