[LinuxBIOS] LinuxBIOS Debian package.

being a Debian developer I wondered wether it would make sense to create
one or more Debian packages for LinuxBIOS. It seems there are no
packages available at the moment - is this correct?

I'm not sure it makes sense to have the src/* and targets/* stuff
packaged (maybe it does), but some things would be nice, I guess.

For example (quick draft):

linuxbios - metapackage which draws in all/most other packages
linuxbios-doc - documentation
linuxbios-utils - standalone utilities, e.g. romcc, flashrom, ...

Maybe also something like linuxbios-src which contains the rest, and
which can be used to compile images(?)

Anyways, let me know if that makes sense or whether there are
problems (e.g. if you'd HAVE TO recompile romcc/flashrom/whatever every
time on your own, it doesn't make sense to package it)...

Cheers, Uwe.
