#2526 was not cleaned before packaging, leading to bloated tarball and build failure

Hello, I'm the maintainer of net-snmp in MacPorts. In the process of trying to update it to version, I discovered that has been packaged improperly. The tarball is 27MB. The tarball for 5.7.2 was only 6MB. Turns out was not cleaned before packaging, so it contains ELF object files, leading to build failure on non-ELF systems, like OS X:

Running "make clean" ends with the following error:

/bin/sh ../libtool  --mode=clean rm -f     core      
make[1]: *** No rule to make target `/usr/lib64/perl5/Config.pm', needed by `Makefile'.  Stop.
make: *** [perlclean] Error 2

Running "make" now also ends with that error. OS X does not use "lib64" directories.

    This also impacts the build under FreeBSD.
