The "move" is really useful if you maintain a source package with
multiple binary package where the upstream author constantly adds new files.

# Check if all files have moved out
	if [ `find $(BUILD) -not -type d | wc -l` -ne 0 ]; then find $(BUILD) -not -type d; echo "File(s) found not belonging to any package, please contact maintainer"; exit 1; fi
