Hmm, currently the intermediate object files are not deleted, at
least not with my version of (latest CVS snapshot).

... just a second ...

Aha, there are two things that affect deletion of intermediate object

1. Variable KEEPOBJS. If set, object files are not marked as

2. Variable NOARSCAN. If set, the lib depends on the on-disc object
files. If not set, the lib depends on its member and each member
depends on its on-disc object file.

NOARSCAN is set for windows platform.
