OK, now we have found the issue.

You are right.

It sshould be deleted by line 938 in the Makefile:

	rm -f configure.log config.mak config.h	codecs.conf.h help_mp.h \
           version.h $(VIDIX_PCI_FILES) \
           codec-cfg$(EXESUF) cpuinfo$(EXESUF) TAGS tags

Find out if this is run during make distclean or not and find out if
any error messages are printed during make distclean.
