 And:

    find -name "*~" -exec rm {} \;

presumably as well so that things work as expected even if you use a 
different or upgraded system for a release?  I haven't figured why e.g. 
some builds of GNU patch use `.orig' as the suffix while other ones use 
`~'.  It must be coming from the configury somewhere.
