No, no, we're talking about different things. The scripts you mentioned
are part of the 'make install' process. This is part of the build process.

I was talking about the deployment. Thinks like some big-fat install.exe
or containing all the binaries and other files, copying them
to the system, so the user can execute the application. That's what I
call completely stupid, as those are the things a package management
system is for.
