Many people will use it. There's 'greg' on this old machine, running
debian-7. Then there's 'greg' on the debian-8 installation on this
same machine. And 'greg' on the debian-8 VM on both, so we're up to
four users on this one machine (or three distinct users because the
VM is shared). Then there's the new machine, where again everyone is
named 'greg'. It's kind of like my own Jacquerie; maybe I should
specify each one's full name as 'Gregoire Bonhomme'.

So we definitely want to package this in a useful way. But I think
makefiles would be best, as this is what 'make' is designed for.
And we already have makefiles; I just need to port them. I've seen
enough of autotools to know I want 'make' for lmi's own code.
