In the future you may consider testing the packaging when the tarballs
are posted for developer testing, rather than only after their public
release.  (at which point they can no longer be pulled)

Are you aware of 'make install-tools'?

If you want to add targets to install individual tools, too, I imagine
we would welcome a patch for this (but I won't have time to handle it
myself).  See the 1.7.5->1.7.6 diff for most of the files you'll need to
touch (makefile.ezt and co).
