           Summary: 'make distclean' aborts
           Product: gcc
           Version: 3.4
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: minor
          Priority: P3
         Component: other
        AssignedTo: unassigned@gcc.gnu.org
        ReportedBy: ebotcazou@gcc.gnu.org
                CC: gcc-bugs@gcc.gnu.org
 GCC build triplet: i586-redhat-linux-gnu
  GCC host triplet: i586-redhat-linux-gnu
GCC target triplet: i586-redhat-linux-gnu

You need to invoke 'make distclean' three times to let it complete its work.

The first time it aborts in the $(TARGET_SUBDIR)/zlib directory because it finds
no rule for 'multi-clean'. The second time it aborts in
$(TARGET_SUBDIR)/boehm-gc directory for the very same reason. The third time it
eventually reaches the final stage, which is to delete empty directories.

Note that it doesn't delete a few generated files in gcc/f and gcc/java either,
as well as various files in gcc/testsuite.
