	Monstro unsplitable patch.

	The aim is to remove hard coded knowledge about clean targets from, leaving them in the *.am files.
	In addition to the mechanic needed to factor some dependencies, it
	appears some rules (most notably distclean and maintainer-clean)
	need factored actions.  So first, be ready to catch factored

	* (&file_contents): For the time being, use an extended
	$RULE_PATTERN which is able to match any kind of rules, with or
	without dependency, with or without actions.
	Handle all the rules uniformly, storing in %actions the factored
	(&flatten, &target_cmp): New.
	(&handle_factored_dependencies): Output the %actions.
	No longer special case `clean'.
	Output the rules in alphabetical order, but keeping `.PHONY' last.

	Now we must not use &push_phony_cleaners, which is doing all sort
	of magic to push a bit of everything in all the clean targets.
	The biggest problem being that, making a Cartesian product, it
	requires many useless targets.  The `*.am' file know better.
	But first, register the new factored rules.

	* (&initialize_per_input): Include clean, mostlyclean,
	maintainer-clean, distclean and their `*-am' counterpart in
	Initialize %actions.
	(get_object_extension, handle_texinfo, handle_tags, handle_multilib)
	handle_dependencies, handle_subdirs, handle_configure, handle_clean)
	(handle_emacs_lisp, handle_python): Don't play with
	&push_phony_cleaners nor &depend and `clean'.
	*, Do it.
	Whenever a target is empty, just remove it, it will no longer be

	There is still some magic about clean to hard code.  But really,
	that's the end of &do_one_clean_target.

	* (&do_one_clean_target): Kaboom out.
	(&handle_clean): Rewrite the magic code.
	(&am_install_var): No longer use &push_phony_cleaners, nor depend
	on `clean'.
	(&push_phony_cleaners): Kaboom too.
