Description

Hi! There are some requests for mulberry to be packaged for Debian and Ubuntu:

http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=427971

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+bug/136356

Just to sum up, there are some things required for that:

  1. There should be a source tarball available on a webpage, for example at http://www.mulberrymail.com/download.shtml
  1. The source tarball should not contain any binary executables, i.e. just source code that can be compiled to a binary.
  1. There should be a proper Makefile, one that does not require internet connection and that allows some sort of "DESTDIR" variable as the install destination folder.

I second this, and think we should first try to work out the build system/scripts, at least for the Linux version, since I haven't heard of anyone (lately) who was able to build Mulberry on a Linux system...
