Sorry, I guess I was not very clear. I meant to suggest that since the
build system called "build" is really a makefile generator for GNU
Make, that it might be helpful if the Debian package name could hint
at that fact.  The rest of my message was suggestions for names. Upon
reflection, not only was the idea not so well expressed, but relationship
with GNU Make could be better expressed in the short description.

OK, I think I have generated enough noise on this issue.
