make delete-old question

Successfully upgraded from 7.2 to 8.0 but had my usual problem when
jumping major versions with the make delete-old target.

The problem being that it asks me to confirm deletion of each lib/file
with a "y" and a return. I've found that I never say "n" to any
deletion and it becomes very tedious to hammer at the keyboard for
hundreds of libs/files.

Is there a way to change the Makefile so that they all get deleted
with just one "y" and a return? Or possibly use yes(1) to script it?
