Subjectclean before or after dep?
I'm having a problem building a Red Hat kernel
(kernel-source-2.4.18-10).

It looks a lot like:
<http://www.van-dijk.net/linuxkernel/200223/0349.html>

The error message is:
make[4]: *** No rule to make target `/usr/src/linux-2.4.18-10/drivers/pci/devlist.h', needed by `names.o'. Stop.

The fix proposed in <http://www.van-dijk.net/linuxkernel/200223/0432.html>
is to reverse the order of clean and dep:

a kind soul pointed out that I should do:

make clean dep
make bzimage

instead. Works. Learned a new trick :-)

Now this seems to contradict
<http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/Kernel-HOWTO-2.html#ss2.3>
which specifies, in step 5:
bash# make dep
bash# make clean

Which is the right order for clean and dep?

I've always assumed that they could be combined, as in:
bash# make dep clean
Am I wrong?

Where is this documented?
