So I'm still hacking install watch.
I attempted to autotoolize the package, but I gave up. libtool is such a pain in the ass, i want to build a library called installwatch.so _not_ libinstallwatch.so, and I only want it to be be a shared library (never a static one). Never mind the lib prefix for now, it won't even add me -nostartfiles to LDFLAG (because it will automatically strip it too). Sheesh. If anyone is familiar with autotools / libtool better then me please email me how I can get this done (firstname.lastname@example.org).
I did get a lot of things done tho; I cleaned up the files a ton. I moved some things into separate files and headers, and I started working on the fake chroot install. That's going good so far.
