Basic assumptions
-----------------
Obviously we assume that there is a configure script, and that after the
ConfigCmd has been run, there is a Makefile.
ConfigCmd: We assume the configure script accepts:
--with-hc
--with-hc-pkg
--prefix
--bindir
--libdir
--libexecdir
--datadir
BuildCmd: We assume the default Makefile target will build everything
InstallCmd: We assume there is an install target
Note that we assume that this does *not* register the package!
CopyCmd: We assume there is a copy target, and a variable $(destdir)
The 'copy' target should probably just invoke make install recursively, eg.
copy :
$(MAKE) install prefix=$(destdir)/$(prefix) \
bindir=$(destdir)/$(bindir) \
...
The reason we can't invoke make install directly here is that we don't
know the value of $(prefix).
SDistCmd: We assume there is an dist target
RegisterCmd: We assume there is a register target and a variable $(user)
UnregisterCmd: We assume there is an unregister target
HaddockCmd: We assume there is a "docs" or "doc" target
ProgramaticaCmd: We assume there is a "programatica" target
