yes, but at least according to debian/ubuntu build rules, that 
doenst seem to be enough. (debian's rule file is over 3k LOC)

For now, at least some hacking fun, learning a bit more about the lo
internals and maybe in the end a much simpler build system.
The whole operation gets more intersting when done for multiple
platforms. I'll start w/ win32 once i'm done w/ gnu/linux.

I'm talking about dropping it completely in my branch.
By the way: what is this actually used for ? Not sure about the
other distros, but Debian+friends dont seem to use it.
