You can configure a build command and make it call "rm -f blah blah" to 
delete those files. Then it will show up in the Build menu and toolbar 
(under the button with the funny looking icon). Search the manual for 
"build command" for more info on setting build commands.

Usually I write a little Make file for stuff like this so that the build 
command just needs to call the appropriate Make file target (ie. in this 
case something like "make clean").
