Hi - sorry for slow reply, I missed this thread. Most of the patches
are by other people but I will try to comment:

 - not sure I'm afraid, it's connected with the emacs sc3 mode, which
I don't use. Looks like it might disable something from running simply
because the build machine isn't the target machine.

 - another emacs mode thing, not sure.

 - build machine != target machine so don't error out if no ruby executable

 - build machine != target machine so don't modify machine's mime database

 - the 'scvim' script is a wrapper which launches vim with the sc3
plugin. debian vim-addons policy requires the plugin not to be
auto-enabled when installing, so we must modify the scvim script to
detect if the addon is not enabled, and to help the user enable it if
they want to. (Needs to be a patch since vim-addon-manager not
necessarily used on all linuxes)

 - I'm not clear on why the change from -rpath to -rpath-link has to
be done here as a patch. cc'ing this message to Артём who may be able
to comment on this, and possibly others.
