How do you package an app up if "grep DESTDIR Makefile" returns nothing?

I'm going to need to install it anyway, so no worries about having it installed.

And yes, that is from efltk.

What I do, when faced with a prog that doesn't use DESTDIR is: install it in emacs, you can then save the buffer as text file for future reference. Then page through the install buffer in emacs and just copy the files manually from their installed location into a dir preserving the dir structure. Then you can create the ipk. Tedious, yeah, but works...

why emacs? just use script or redirect the output of the make install into a file...

oh and dont forget to send the author a note telling him/her that they should add DESTDIR
