Yes, I have seen this too, need to report it to the libtool people.
Thanks for reminding me.

That's a weird one, I'll have to check that out.

Libtool's "distclean" functionality has a lot of flaws, this being one
of them. For a while I was fighting a problem where it didn't clean up
properly and "make distcheck" would fail... At least these leftovers
are "hidden" directories and don't really affect the user. As long as
you actually use "make dist" to make a tarball instead of tarring up
the source tree after a "make distclean" things will go just fine.
