No, it doesn't exist, and I really have no idea what could have removed
it. I don't use any tmp cleaners or anything like that. My exact actions
were to run make, run make clean, edit two files, run make and then
attempt to commit. Nothing in any of those invocations of make would
have touched that directory, so this is a little worrying.

For now, I'm just going to create a new branch from the last commit
and copy diffs over.

More later, pending investigations...
