bug#23661: [PATCH] compile: remove .Tpo file upon failure

Jim Meyering
I was annoyed not to be able to use automake's latest-from-master
while preparing for a diffutils release: "make distcheck" would fail
with a single left-over .Tpo file under gnulib-tests.

Here is the patch that solved the problem for me.
Comments welcome. I expect to push to master in a day or two.
