	Someone showed me an ruby gem called "fpm" which has made things so much better for anyone
doing anything with packaging here.

	Basically, if the thing has a fairly standard "make install" type target (preferably autoconf
+ configure --prefix), then it will build you a .deb, .rpm, etc... with the dependency lists
and everything else you need with roughly the same command.
