moved this to pd-dev, as i think this is more appropriate....

that's why i would suggest something as simple as using 
"Makefile.extended" which could live besides an existing "Makefile" and 
make use of it (if this is feasible).

we then schould provide a generic Makefile.extended for building those 
externals that do not need any more specific handling.

i would suggest following targets:
configure, build (default), install, clean

and the rest is in the Wiki http://puredata.info/dev/ModularBuildSystem
(by chance i sent the Wiki announcement before this email...)
