Re: Possible framework for `debmake replacement'
Rather than use M4 (and loose the ability to see what is
happening by just running make -n), how about this:
-include debian/Debian/Variables #over rides
DOC_TO_INSTALL:= readme.txt, release-notes.txt
binary-arch: checkroot build
# Runs the installation.
make install prefix=`pwd`/debian/tmp
# Installs documentation.
# Installs standard docs.
# Strip binaries
# Fix symlinks
# Make the package
chown -R root.root debian/tmp
chmod -R go=rX debian/tmp
dpkg --build debian/tmp ..
No macros. no magic. Everything statically defined, and not
modified till we run debmk-upgrade again. (we could even use m4 in
debmk-upgrade, if you are set on using m4).

fur.... Recognizable, but very unpleasent." cruc!gevert
