The only other option I can think of is shipping a wrapper in


and setting PATH=$(top_dir)/debian/bin:$PATH

Is that better than patching the Makefile? In ifstat I just patched
the -s away. Only one occurance and only a Makefile.in. Seemed
simpler. But with more complex sources a wrapper might be way less


PS: don't forget chmod u+x debian/bin/install
