[]Not really OK. You can make clean, but a few of the system utils on the net

That was not really the question. When I had kernel-source 2.0.27 (which was
a complete tree, I recall) I made a symlink from /usr/src/linux-2.0.27 to
/usr/src/linux. Compiled to my needs and run it a few weeks.
Then I installed the complete 2.0.28 tree, re-symlinked and
compiled to my needs. In THAT case, my question is, can the 2.0.27 tree
be removed, as /usr/src/linux now points to /usr/src/linux-2.0.28.
