Well, further to that, I'm having a go at making packages.

I'll let you know of any problems:

The documentation build throws up errors --- looks like I may well
have an old version of db2html??

The .po messages *still* don't install cleanly on a DESTDIR build ---
how does the rpm overcome this? --- I patch the beginning of

-prefix = @prefix@
+prefix = $(DESTDIR)@prefix@
 exec_prefix = @exec_prefix@
 datadir = $(prefix)/@DATADIRNAME@
 localedir = $(datadir)/locale

With those provisos, I have a package built, and it seems to work.
