bug/improvement in top-level Makefile

Postby eponymousalias » Sun Jul 09, 2017 4:38 am

The top-level Nagios-distribution Makefile has a bug: make contrib
believes that the contrib directory satisfies the make target by merely
existing, as opposed to causing a descent into the contrib directory and
building there. The make target should probably be renamed to contribs,
and named as such in the simple make none output.

Also, there should be an install-contribs target in the top-level
Makefile that installs the contribs stuff with cd contrib; make install,
without needing to manually chdir to the contrib directory and run
make install there.
