It looks like this has not worked for a long time.  The scripts
directory is not included in the main recursive processes; it seems to
be special-cased for build and not for clean.  This is partly deliberate
because clean is supposed to leave 'enough to build external modules'.
It's not obvious to include scripts/packages/ in clean.
