[Buildroot] force buildroot to regenerate the output/target directory tree

I've been using buildroot since some time and there is a thing I didn't figure 
out yet. Consider this situation: I have a working buildroot environment; I have 
copied into the output/target folder some stuff so that when I run "make" 
buildroot generates for me images into output/images which already contain the 
contents I manually copied.
Now I would like to "reset" the output/target folder, i.e. obtain the buildroot 
"vanilla" output/target tree and to obtian the buildroot vanilla 
output/images.... how can I do that without doing a "make clean" (which requires 
re-compilation of all packages and takes a lot of time)? 

does a "rm -rf output/target && make" works?
