That's what make distclean is for.

That still doesn't fix leftovers from manual compiling in the tree (causing
the .o/.ppu's not to go into units/), so on trees where I do a lot of
editing, I usually recursively clean.

Note that recursively killing .o's will kill some that are checked in too
(in tests and univint iirc)
