Distribution.Make

Description

This is an alternative build system that delegates everything to the make program. All the commands just end up calling make with appropriate arguments. The intention was to allow preexisting packages that used makefiles to be wrapped into Cabal packages. In practice essentially all such packages were converted over to the "Simple" build system instead. Consequently this module is not used much and it certainly only sees cursory maintenance and no testing. Perhaps at some point we should stop pretending that it works.

Uses the parsed command-line from Distribution.Simple.Setup in order to build Haskell tools using a back-end build system based on make. Obviously we assume that there is a configure script, and that after the ConfigCmd has been run, there is a Makefile. Further assumptions:

ConfigCmd
We assume the configure script accepts --with-hc, --with-hc-pkg, --prefix, --bindir, --libdir, --libexecdir, --datadir.
BuildCmd
We assume that the default Makefile target will build everything.
InstallCmd
We assume there is an install target. Note that we assume that this does *not* register the package!
CopyCmd
We assume there is a copy target, and a variable $(destdir). The copy target should probably just invoke make install recursively (e.g. $(MAKE) install prefix=$(destdir)/$(prefix) bindir=$(destdir)/$(bindir). The reason we can't invoke make install directly here is that we don't know the value of $(prefix).
SDistCmd
We assume there is a dist target.
RegisterCmd
We assume there is a register target and a variable $(user).
UnregisterCmd
We assume there is an unregister target.
HaddockCmd
We assume there is a docs or doc target.
