It's what you're doing that's quirky. :)

For something like ClamAV, I don't see the point. You seem to be
making it harder for yourself than it needs to be.

As Mr. Swiger said, that's expected.

As I said, I think you're making this harder than it needs to be. You
do know that after "make install" you can delete the entire source tree
if you don't want to keep it? What's wrong with a small shell script?

cd /tmp
tar xzvf /nfs_mount/clamav-x.xx.tgz
cd clamav-x.xx
./configure --with-various-options
sudo make install
cd ..
rm -rf clamav-x.xx
