No I had not. I'd known that you'd done some work but didn't realize
you'd gotten so far.

I'm not sure which approach is better. I see that you've given
yourself standard Unix tools. I went with Perl since I could get away
without having them. I was also trying to keep the required
dependencies to use it down to a minimum.

Both of us appear to want to be able to look for things in bin,
include and lib dirs, which the build system doesn't really want to do
at current.

Yup, part of the reason my packaged up output is so big is I'm
shipping a lot of crap I don't want to because of the assumptions of
the build system.
