Now i have a Makefile that runs packer-io that fails on systems where

I would like to provide the user a single command to build "my" software
(eg. make), but am not sure what i should do.
1. Tell Archlinux users to manually alias/link `packer` pointing to
2. Automagically try to findout the correct executable in Makefile?
3. Request a rename of packer executable upstream?
4. Request a rename of packer-io executable upstream?
What would you do?
 at least Debian and MS-Windows
