Description (last modified by diver)

It would be a really good idea to include .packageInfo generation and package building into the makefile_engine. Since makefile already contains all libs which the program is linked to the dependencies shouldn't be the biggest problem. For all other information there could be variables defined. This would be really really helpful and would make life much much more easier.

I'm afraid this is really outside the scope of the makefile_engine for any number of reasons. It barely has install rules as-is; it doesn't even know what directories to install to, and it certainly has no idea about data files or directory structures that applications may need.

If you don't want to use HaikuPorter, just make a shell script to do it manually with whatever your application needs in it.
