What do you do when you need to install files produced by the build
system but not installed. *.install can easily reference source file,
or installed files (debian/tmp/*), but this is un-easy to reference
file produced by make (before make install).

What I did is patch the original build system to install files that
were not originally meant to be installed: *.html. They are used as
intermediate step to produce qch files.

I'll check but it seems I had to set a clean:: rule to get things working.

Thanks anyway,
