If it is Makefile only, you have point.  I have many supplimental build
scripts including hacked debiandocsgml2* to build Chinese PDF/PS files
and other things.  Does VPATH address all of them?  If not, stick with
crude but simple method.

FYI: I have created CVS for alioth with updated filenames etc.


I am travelling next few days.

So please do not comit to CVS under /cvsroot/ddp/ddp/*

You can play with it by checking out.

Manual page will not be affected.

Also check http://ddp.alioth.debian.org for the summary of situation.

When I come back, I will check mails and do a fair fixing if needed.

/cvsroot/ddp/ddp/Makefile will not work as is since I changed file

Good night.
