Is it possible to add a "DESTDIR" variable in makefiles that don't have it ?
Some makefiles like those inside ffmpeg CVS don't have a DESTDIR so it's kinda difficult to create packages because you need to use the --prefix parameter and then edit some of the files generated after the installation.
Mostly text files that have directory information.
So it could be very usefull to use a DESTDIR parameter in that cases.
Do you have any ideas instead of going through the autoconf && automake process ?? Especially this way is kinda risky because the developers may edit and change the configure script before they give it to us and those changes may be vital ..
