I've pushed this to:


Currently, it's in as a feature

./configure --enable-elpa
./configure --enable-elpa=where-to-find-or-clone-elpa

Main features:

 - Works with externals or non-external packages.
 - Versions are specified by git SHA, so a version build will be
 - Both code and tests are supported
 - It's customizable by package authors on ELPA.
 - Doesn't use package.el (I think this is an anti-feature, but tried
   that before and no one liked it)
 - It requires network access only if ELPA is not available locally, or if
   the Makefile which describes versions is updated
 - Works with make -j in which case it does a git clone which the C is building

None Features: 
 - Currently, only works with a single git repo (i.e. ELPA) which is
   hard coded.
 - Doesn't support documentation or info

To be done:
 - Give it prettier output
 - Clean ups.
