Hey there. Please see TODO.autoconf part libalpm and codechanges "topic"
I added that line about configure and config.h detection for this.
Now the main idea was create some "schema"-based stuff, where we store
all values for each distributions. Like how pkg filename will look,
whats the cachedir, whats the pkgext, etc.. And then we can do a
--with-distro=archlinux --with-distro=frugalware or
For new distros wants to use pacman as pkgmanager it is good, because
ina schema-based system he can fill out or add files for pacman and can
use it with care.
I dunno how can be this done in coding, 'cause i not worked on this atm.
But if its good idea and fine, then maybe the schema-based / autoconf
options will do the work no ?
And all specific distro changes contained by one file like:
distros/archlinux.h distros/frugalware.h etc.
