Normally, you would delete the build and source directories
immediately. In this case, though, I want you to keep them until we're
done testing because I might ask you to grep around in the source
directory. You should still delete them when you proceed to the next
package (assuming any problems have been sorted out). I just want to
make sure you don't delete them right away and then have to start the
build again.
