I realise the the build file does not fit Debian. This was produced to try and support many different distro's.
There's no need to have a different file just for Debian. We can incorporate things that one would expect there, like the prefix of the path where the tool will be installed, the environment variable DESTDIR being taken into account, providing other targets etc.
BTW, please, add me a project admin to ppc-evtd, so that I can continue with the current work. I won't be able to work as much as I can today starting in November. So, I would like to post news, post new tarballs etc.
Also, for better coordination, I think that posting on a forum is not the best way to proceed. e-mails would be more appropriate, I think.
