The 'realclean' target does delete that file for the current host-arch,

But that command itself generated an error about the missing 7.0.1 directory.
Yes, you would have had to run the 'realclean' command before moving the tree, then it would have worked. Or use Martin Konrad's git command.

This RELEASE.<host>.local file is needed for builds of our sub-modules to be able to find their build rules and install location. Support modules can't assume EPICS_BASE is at $(TOP)/../.. because if someone sets INSTALL_LOCATION in their base/configure/CONFIG_SITE file it won't be. Sites using the same build tree to support multiple host architectures with different mount paths is why the file has to be host-specific, and it also has to give an absolute path because the RELEASE files get pulled in by every Makefile in the source tree.
