Package: cdbs
Version: 0.4.122
Severity: normal
Tags: patch


I've just moved grep packaging (version 2.18-1) to cdbs. One of the
manual settings I had to do is to configure the prefix of
architecture-dependent files (grep installs its binaries in /bin/).
Since I didn't find a specific cdbs autotools variable for this, I'm
DEB_CONFIGURE_EXTRA_FLAGS += --exec-prefix=/

The attached patch adds DEB_CONFIGURE_EXECDIR to autotools-vars.mk



PS. I admit that I used to dislike cdbs, but now I think it's useful.
Thanks a lot for you work!
