-dh_clean is a debhelper program that is responsible for cleaning up after a
-package is built. It removes the package build directories, and removes some
-other files, such as debian/substvars, debian/files, and any detritus left
-behind by other debhelper commands. It also removes common files that
-should not appear in a debian diff:
- #*# *~ DEADJOE *.orig *.rej *.SUMS TAGS core .deps/* *.P
-.B debhelper options

-for a list of options common to all debhelper commands.
-.B \-k, \--keep
-Do not delete debian/files. When do you want to use this? Anytime you have a
-debian/rules that has 2 binary targets that build different .deb packages;
-for example, one target is binary-arch, and the other is binary-indep, or
-one target builds the shared library, and the other the -dev package. If you
-didn't use -k in these cases, then debian/files would be deleted in the
-middle, and your changes file will only contain the last binary package that
-was built.
-.B \-d, \--dirs-only
-Only clean the package build directories, do not clean up any other files at
-.B \-Xitem, \--exclude=item
-Exclude files that contain "item" anywhere in their filename from being
-deleted, even if they would normally be deleted. You may use this option
-multiple times to build up a list of things to exclude.
-.B file ...
-Delete these files too.
