configure automake to remove *.dat and *.log


Hi group,
I am using automake to support a project using C source code and I want to add a new clean up script to the Makefiles generated by automake. The new code would remove all files ending with a '.dat' and '.log'. The addition should look something like this:
Code:
find .. -type f -name  \*.log -or -name \*.dat -or -name \*~ -exec rm {} \;
Can someone point me to an example web page that will shoe me how to add this function to the generated Makefiles? Or the magic strings to search Google.

Thanks for your time.

OK, I figured it out. I added this to the makefile.am.
Code:
clearlog:
	find src -type f -name  \*.log -or -name \*.dat -or -name \*~ -exec rm -f {} \;
