Ehh?  I would like to see a system, where 'rm -f' doesn't work as
intended.  If you really really want to check, then do it like:

  @test -f $(DESTDIR)bla && rm -f $(DESTDIR)bla

Anyway: The -f never was in that Makefile.am, the command as it is now was
new in rev 1.56.

It has the then superflous 'kinfocenter' still in CLEANFILES.  But anyway
please use 'rm -f'.
