[PATCH 0/3] Making the buildsystem more distribution-friendly

I'm a Gentoo Linux developer (but not limited to that), I'm interested
in using ragel for a few projects, but looking at updating it in our
tree, I've seen that the build system requires quite a few quirks that
makes it a bit unfriendly.

I'm sending a few patches that makes it slightly more friendly (two
out of three apply over 6.3 version too, one just applies to trunk).

I'm also wondering why it doesn't use directly automake and whether
that could be considered (if so, I'll be glad to help by porting it to
automake myself).

At any rate, I hope this can be of help.

      Add support for DESTDIR variable for offset installation.
      Use CXXFLAGS for compiling rather than CFLAGS.
      Don't use install -s to strip files during install.
