That change doesn't work.  After building the library and compiler,
we do a build at the top level; since the .o files have been removed,
this causes the library to be rebuilt, and (since this build doesn't
have RM_C=: specified) in the process deletes the stage 2 library .c files;
this causes the final diff between the stage2 and stage3 .c files to fail.

Can you please fix this or back out that part of your change?
