right but others (FPC and Lazarus) do... not to mention that it was an example 
and i didn't feel like laying out the whole lazarus tree to show it from that 

in any case, failing to run "make clean" or "make disclean" /before/ "svn up" 
can lead to problems with old libraries being left in old locations when files 
are moved... we've seen this exact situation with Lazarus in numerous cases... 
the standard response has been to run the "Clean up build files" option which 
removes all .o, o., and .ppu files so they can be rebuilt from the proper source 
files from their (new) locations...

question: at what point does your updater tool perform "make clean" or "make 
distclean"? before or after or both, before and after, the svn update?
