no, you are perfectly clear... clean doesn't always work... distclean should... 
i've never used distclean in my update scripts but i will be changing that

:(  think about it... you have a source tree like this


you have refined mylib.pas to the point that you want to use it in other 
projects so you move it to \projects\libs and adjust the makefile accordingly...


so you started as #1 above and svn up to #2... when you run make clean, the old 
mylib.o,.a,.ppu files are still in \projects\myproject somewhere and may be used 
by the compiler instead of those that should be in \projects\libs where you 
moved your mylib.pas file to...

is that clearer now??
