	Ah - that does seem a tad unfortunate. I'm sure there are lots of good
things in debian's rules file that we could fold into the core and make
easier for distributors in an incremental fashion. Having not read the
file - I've no concrete ideas there :-) but ... at least looking at how
some of our .spec files re-order and re-group the scp2 break-down to get
the packaging prettier lots could be improved in that bit alone.

	Oh; EPM is used to build the generic cross-distribution packages that
