Yeah, it looks like in the long term this would be necessary anyway.
And I guess your support for optional parts could be based on this.
So, I'll work on the installation library this week-end, in order to:
- change the --install-prefix option to --dest-dir and make it
behave like DESTDIR does in Makefiles,
- add an option to install only non-shared parts; in the process,
I'll rewrite the option parsing facility, to allow additional
options as you suggest,
- change the definition of the "lib" location in layouts so that it
always point to a directory containing all the platform-dependent
Everything (except maybe full support for additional options) should
be ready by Monday morning.
