That's certainly a defendable position.
What if the user explicitly used --prefix=$SAGE_ROOT/local
or to another subdirectory of $SAGE_ROOT
?

I would lean toward make distclean
removes any $SAGE_LOCAL
that's a subdirectory of $SAGE_ROOT
. That's the point of make distclean
. There's not much use for a custom --prefix
outside installing Sage outside of $SAGE_ROOT
.
Note: See
TracTickets for help on using
tickets.
I would argue that
$SAGE_LOCAL
should not be deleted bymake distclean
but that$SAGE_ROOT/local
should be deleted bymake distclean
.
