Because that's what distributions use. Like Ubuntu (see the bug report I forwarded).

Okay, then we need at least a tarball for Linux. I just thought it's not that much harder to make it work on different unixes than different Linuxes. At least that's the assumption we have been operating under. There is only a single tarball release for all unices, AFAIK.

So you are suggesting to hand-code the makefiles again? Everybody needs to tweak them to fit their machine? You can't be serious.
