1. Seen this, been there :-)
What i do is compile & manually copy the files to a
file-tree created for this purpose. Could be located anywhere, just
populated with etc/ usr/sbin etc . Then a tar the whole bunch
( make shure you get a relative path : cd $BY-TREE ; tar cvf tarfile.tar . ),
move the tarfile to target systems ; on target system : cd / ; tar xvf tarfile.tar
2. the makefile assumes you have the compiler and other tools installed, which
might not be the case.
The more general solution is creating a pkg / RPM / depot ( or whatever your
vendor finds fance. The above is simpler.
