This was not necessary for the parts you patch did not touch.  It should
even be avoided as patches shall never contain unrelated changes.  I

The way to do this in Makefiles is to prepend a '-' to the command, make
will then ignore any errors it returns.  rm -rf is another possibility,
but of course you need to be very careful as to what dir you blow away.
