configure.pl is highly interactive and makes some modifications in source files. For this reason porting of BackupPC is complicated and nearly impossible to create "binary" packages without major change of source code.
Is it possible to split configure.pl on two different scripts?
1. Installation script
that will make all required modifications in source files, configure distribution specific parameters like dirs locations and install files.
2. Configuration (and upgrade) script
that will make modifications in config files only.
