[LLVMdev] Cleaning out .d files

I just wanted to mention that there is a new global makefile target "make
cleandeps", which recursively walks through the source tree, deleting .d
files, without removing anything else.

This is useful when you update from CVS, and find out that there has been
a header file removed.  Before you'd have to go in and remove the
outdated .d manually, now you can just run 'make cleandeps'.

Obviously it would be nice if this probably didn't exist at all, but I
don't know of a good solution to this problem...
