Yeah, of course, but that can go into a backend. Notably, this is distro
(and probably even distro-version) specific as opposed to the current
backend interface that is depsolver-specific. Which is a problem for
different distros using the same depsolver (e.g. both Ubuntu and Debian
use apt-get but they may differ on this naming policy).
However, I think it's fine for yum/rpm based distros to assume they're
using something like
otherwise you probably just want configure options to specify how to
build the backend, e.g.
etc. and then do the right thing in the yum backend that these guys are
(or aren't) using.
