Yes, I do understand Makefiles a little. But when I build my kernel packages
I don't want to manually go into that particular folder
(say /usr/src/linux-x.x/video/) and do a make manually and come back and
then build the package.
make-kpkg is an excellent tool to ease and automate the kernel building
process and I want to enjoy it.
Is it harmful implementing the clean-all/force option ?
