Can the "make install" tag be changed to do a make if necessary?
It'd be more standard if so.
I always have to do this:
cvs update; ./configure; make; sudo make install
Where I should only have to do this:
cvs update; ./configure; sudo make install

Actually, this is a bad idea, consider the following scenario:
1) user does "sudo make install", which results in a make
2) user attempts to do a "make", this now fails because several of the files
are now owned by root and are thus not overwriteable.
It's normally considered bad practice in the Linux/Unix world to do
*anything* as root which doesn't really require it.

It is well known that Discworld trolls loose intelligence as they warm up.
Does this mean that a particularly hot headed troll would be a lava lout?
