Done. I'd have preferred to only change it in a print view, but since
there is none I added them normally.

I didn't add this one, though, as it shouldn't be necessary during
normal operation. During normal operation, make clean will probably only
throw a bunch of error messages (since it's trying to delete files that
don't exist), which I'd prefer to avoid.
In general, if you change anything fundamental at the beginning of the
guide, you should redo the whole guide with a fresh copy, anyway.
Otherwise you're easily stuck with incompatible versions, etc.

Done. I didn't think it's necessary usually, but maybe that's
configuration/version specific. In any case, this command line shouldn't
hurt ;).

Thanks for these contributions!
