Basically, what I looking for is a 'make package' rule, where all the files
that would be installed, plus an install script could be tarred up together,
so we can copy the tarball to many diferent servers, unpack it, run the
script, and the files get installed without the need of copying over or nfs
mounting the whole source code? Not a fancy full blown package like rpm.

Here is most of what you need:

.PHONY: package
package: all
        $(RM) $(RELEASE_TAR)
        mkdir -p $(RELEASE_DIR)
        $(MAKE) install DESTDIR=`pwd`/$(RELEASE_DIR)
        (cd $(RELEASE_DIR) && tar -czf ../$(RELEASE_TAR) *) && \
        $(RM) -r $(RELEASE_DIR) && \
        echo Created binary release package \"$(RELEASE_TAR)\".
