Nah, test for the files Michale & I mentioned. I dunno if this'll work
(really not familiar w/ Makefiles & how their syntax overlaps w/, say,
if (test -x /etc/redhat-release); then
echo "This is a RedHat distribution."
elif (test -x /etc/debian_version); then
echo "This is a Debian distribution."
echo "I don't know what this distribution is, you'll have to deal manually."
This could be quite broken, it should be tested -- and something needs to
be done with that "else" to keep it from installing that bit when it
doesn't know where it goes. At some point I want to look at some of these
directory structures & see if we can intellegently guess what's necessary.
BTW, what about the simlinks in like /etc/rc3.d ? Are they all the same
in systems that use this basic structure ? (what'd somebody call it ?
SysV ? I knew that once...)
