I don’t know. We don’t use binary packages.

No, we use `start_cmd make -j distro-pack-install DESTDIR=/some/where`. 
What do you recommend?

I don’t see a good reason to divert from standards like `./configure && 
make && make install && make check # or test`. That way, it’s one more 
barrier to integrate it in continuous integration systems like Travis CI 
or similar.

Kind regards,
