I know it doesn't; I was asking for making it detectable. Perhaps 
instead of LFS, you could use DEBIAN as "ZEND_BUILD_EXTRA" 
instead then? Or perhaps include flags with that, that show all the 
different Debian flags/options/or perhaps a debian specific version nr 
as well; such as DEBIAN1, DEBIAN2 etc...
