You'd need to not clean them away. That HOWTO I wrote is silent about 
what to do with your installation directory that includes the source. 
You may as well leave it (having possibly done "make clean" to get rid 
of useless object files, unless you're planning rebuilds). Or you can 
unpack the source again and put it anywhere that strikes your fancy. 
There's not many rules for Cygwin, especially not for things that don't 
have to interact with anything else, such as a passive source distribution.
