Well, I definitely think there are other packages like openssl, don't 
underestimate the imagination of developpers, althought it shouldn't be 
the majority.

In blastwave, I think at least pine and procmail don't use the standard 
configure, so it would be nicer to be able to handle that case without 
specific tweak.

The prototype are parts of DISTFILES, have a look at 
They are arch suffixed, maybe that's not correctly handled.
