[PD-dev] autobuild externals, motex and ext13 makefile issues..

The idea is to make a template Makefile for use with any lib that  
doesn't need ./configure (which is most).  Then once we have something  
that people are happy with, make it the default Makefile template,  
include it in the Externals HOWTO, and then use it in the libraries  
that are in SVN.

The DESTDIR stuff was breaking by brain.  Perhaps you could give it a  
shot and see if you could make more sense of it?  It seems that you  
have a good use case, so that might make it easier to work thru the  

I don't remember, do you have commit access?  If so, just commit the  
changes, if not add patches to the tracker, or request commit access.
