But still needs work.  I think these work: build, check, dist, www
and a few more.  Still need to get distcheck and other things checked
and fixed.

I changed it last night to "gpsd-VERSION".  That way gnu tar is not
needed to make the dist tarball.  It is now just a variable at the top
of SConstruct: variantdir.

I don't immediately see how it could be a configuration variable because
configuration is done after changing to the variant directory.

What is you use case?
