new mc2 and new-make versions

The new mc2 version includes some stuff to allow more targets without getting your hands dirty modifying the output makefile. More templates.

[Save your old templates before installing this version, if you have any. They might get overwritten.]

The new new-make has better 'make finddeps' dependency output and a couple of new features.

This is GREAT for sandbox installations for testing or fixing up old apps and libs with ZERO chance of linking or including the wrong files, which seems to be a rampant problem in many oldies but goodies. Or primitive apps with outstanding algorithms.

It can also be used to make binary packages for the main file system but it's tricky and risky, especially if you don't have THOROUGH backups of your system critical files. It was originally created to make deb and rpm test packages before committing to real installation but nowadays, I mostly use it for quick installations and testing/debugging stuff, and I use it A LOT!
