Subject: Re: make clean

The way the Rockbox code works, you do NOT build in the source directories.

Instead, you create a empty directory at the same level as the other Rockbox
dirs (like "apps"). Then, you go into that empty directory and do a
"../tools/configure" which will create a makefile depending on how you
answer the questions. Then you do a "make".

The advantage of this is that you can have several configurations of builds
all using the same "untouched" source files. I don't think anything ever
gets written into the source tree.

Hope this helps.
