I know nothing about zpkg so I can not comment about the details. However
I another problem. I run zkpgtools from the HEAD (with a fixed version
of configure.in with TARGET=2.4.2). When I build the 2.9 archive using
'make sdist' I still have a generated configure file in the archive
with TARGET=2.4.1. Where is this coming from?
