Instead of removing examples & examples_clean targets, what do you think
keeping them as wrapper to suggested usage, for backward compatibility.

Something like:

# Build directory is given with O=
O ?= $(RTE_SDK)/examples

# Target for which examples should be built.
T ?= build

.PHONY: examples
        @echo ================== Build examples for $(T)
        $(MAKE) -C examples O=$(abspath $(O)) RTE_TARGET=$(T);

.PHONY: examples_clean
        @echo ================== Clean examples for $(T)
        $(MAKE) -C examples O=$(abspath $(O)) RTE_TARGET=$(T) clean;
