The intent was to leave the source around so that you could go look
at things if there was a problem (especially during a build).

A probably completed "Trim" phase would have solved this. :-\ (e.g.,
keep_successful_mpi_builds = 0). But Trim is unfortunately quite
complex to implement -- that's the only reason it hasn't been done yet.

As a short-term options, which would you prefer:

1. a post_build option that will run after a success build/install
2. an option to simply whack the entire source tree after a
successful build/install
