Shouldn't deprecated ports support make clean?

A few comments:

1. The port benchmarks/expedite is not deprecated - it is alive and valid.
In fact, the package was last built on 9.3 only 6 days ago.

2. The 'make clean' command DOES still work on deprecated packages. The
deprecated warning is only an advisory message.

Perhaps you should tell us when you last updated your ports tree, and what
your exact command and error message was?
