Re: [debian-installer] Build setup?

On debian-boot, you wrote:

The boot-floppies installer is worse than what he describes, as it does

build::  some dependency
	$(MAKE) foo
	$(MAKE) bar
	$(MAKE) baz

Which tends to mean that if the build fails halfway through, you have to
go through all the steps again, which on a <100MHz PowerMac isn't fun.
