As I've been working a lot with userland recently, I tried to take a bunch
of my recurring questions and things that I keep having to pull out of
various Makefile includes and document them here:
This is still a work in progress. I was also considered providing a few
example Makefiles and package manifests in the wiki as illustrations of how
to deal with particular problems (a few of the xemacs Makefiles could be
useful here, as would the latest version of git), some of which I touched
on in this doc.
