Peter, do you have time before the end of the month to sort this out?
It would be nice to have a real solution in this area, because certainly
we have some problems here.

I would think that we'd want to make the contrib tree use whatever
solution is developed for building outside the main source tree, simply
because that's a handy test case for verifying that it's not broken.

I won't commit hara-kiri if this is not solved for 7.5, but it is an
open issue, especially for RPM and similar package installations.
If Fabien's work is at all close to a usable solution, it'd be a shame
not to get it done in this release cycle.
