I would use
    find <dirname> -depth -type d -print | xargs rmdir

"-depth" means it goes after the lowest-level directories first.
That way, a directory which contains only empty directories will
get clobbered.

"-print" because I'm used to old "find"s where it wasn't implied
under any conditions.
