Hi Pedro,

That is already possible using the configure option
   --with-package-format="installed"
which avoids the archive creation.

Getting back to the topic of having an "install" makefile target:
There already is an "install" target for dmake, but its usage and its 
result is different enough from a "make install" in most other projects.

Changing the build process so that "make clean", "make", "make install" 
etc. will work as expected by newcomers might be a worthwhile goal.

With the files of the "installed" package-format already residing in 
e.g. main/instsetoo_native/*/OpenOffice/installed/install/en-US
eventually it is not too much effort to add an "install" target that 
feels almost right.

Herbert
