> Where was this fixed?  It is still a problem in Python 2.6.6.

I assumed it was fixed after looking at the code: clean does take build-* options from the build command.

> For example, if I do: 
> python build_ext --compiler=mingw32  build --build-platlib=build\win64
> Then follow it up with:
> python clean --build-base=build\win64 -a
> This is what it does:
> running clean
> 'build\' does not exist -- can't clean it
> removing 'build\' (and everything under it)
> 'build\scripts-2.6' does not exist -- can't clean it
> As you can see, the base directory argument is ignored.

I’m not sure if this is a distutils bug or if you have to use the same options (i.e. build-lib both times, not build-platlib then build-base).  The original report used -b (build-base) for both commands, so I’ll turn that into a test (unless you’d like to do it?) to see if it works as intended or not.
