[RFC PATCH 6] support make goals after initial {'', dist, data}clean goal(s)

Now make goal combinations starting with *clean goals,
ending with *clean coals, and having non-*clean goals in between
should work. What does not expected to work are
non-*clean - *clean - *non-clean goal combinations.

Also, if first goals are *clean goals, re-creation of Makefile.config
is inhibited when Makefile.config exists and ./configure is newer.

Now there is more probability I don't figure out anything that
could be improved (but, if things go as usual, i know that
tomorrow morning ;)
