Note: /pd/pd/dev/ModularBuildSystem/edit "done in a way"

currently the Pd-extended build-system features 

- a working system

- a huge monolithic Makefile

- dependencies on several toplevel directories

this basically means that you have to checkout a lot of code if you need and want to build a single external (and not the entire shebang)


 - split monolithic Makefile into separate small Makefiles which are then called recursively

 - each extended-enabled sub-directory in externals/ holds a 'Makefile.extended'

   - if 'Makefile.extended' is present, it will be called from the main externals/Makefile recursively

 - there is only a small number of build-targets

  in order of inter-dependencies

  - 'configure' -- runs autoconf or whatever (if needed)

  - 'build' (default) -- builds the binary

  - 'install' -- installs the binaries into a certain location (see below)

  - 'clean' -- remove build leftovers

 - configuration (e.g. path to pd-headers, compiler to use,...) 

   - should be distributed via environment variables

   - rather than via '-include Makefile.common' constructs

 - use GNU standards:

   - e.g. 'prefix', 'DESTDIR',...

 - each Makefile.extended is responsible to make the modules own build system (if available) conformant to this standards

The "Library Template": accomplishes this in a somewhat different approach.  I think it covers the over-arching idea.
