Most of the changes you have made are for the build code
which is part of the code base. We just have to separate the generel
improvements from the Mandriva specific ones.

Generel should go into the main code
and specific ones we could add to our repository in a 
packaging/mandriva subdirectory.

As I said, we could add the mandriva specs to the Skencil repository,
but I know that you already maintain them in your SCM, so it might
not be necessary. So we only need to extract which of your changes
are interesting for all Skencil users/builders.
