My point was that I don't think we should have in our Makefiles
targets that require tools which are neither expected to be installed
on many systems nor come with the Emacs repository.  If people must
install add-on packages, then the glue to use those packages vis-a-vis
Emacs is better kept as part of the package.  E.g., you could have a
small Makefile in the package with a lint-emacs-regexps target.
