Build System Cleanup -------------------- This commit is intended to clear the way for automatic RPM building. In particular, the idea is that 'make install' doesn't build anything, so you can do make install prefix=/some/tmp/prefix to install everything in /some/tmp/prefix, but leave the hardwired-in install directories the same. For scripts that depend on the install dir (currently just the GHC driver and mkdependHS), we now build two versions: <script>-inplace, which is used for running the script from the build tree, and <script>, which is the to-be-installed version. NOTE: binary distributions are now a little bit trickier to build. You *must* include the line "BIN_DIST=1" in your build.mk if you intend to make a binary distribution from the current build tree. This is because certain scripts have to be built differently, and we don't rebuild them when doing 'make binary-dist' anymore (since 'make binary-dist' just does a 'make install' with a re-targetted prefix, just like the RPM builder). Other changes - the binary-dist machinery is now all in fptools/Makefile - removed a gratuitous $(package)-$(version) level of directories from the binary distribution. - binary distributions are now placed under the package name, rather than fptools/fptools. - various other minor cleanups.
