I've had a look at the code in build-program this weekend and there isn't an 
overidable function. Instead it does an eval $AB_DISTCLEAN so you would need 
to set
the AB_DISTCLEAN variable to the command required to do the clean.

I'm not sure why the distclean didn't follow the same pattern as the others.

Would you be able to set a command in AB_DISTCLEAN for your project?
If not, then I will have a look at what's required to modify build-program 
provide an ab_distclean override.
