The main point is that `make clean' does not delete the compiled lisp
files (and cannot, since they are prebuilt in lisp tarfiles).
`make maintainer-clean', or `make bootstrap' does.
Always use `make bootstrap' if CPU time is not a factor, even when
building the same branch.

(Presumably this issue is going to occur more in the git-era, since it
doesn't have shared repos.)
