I can read that no problem (although there are so sensible rules for
making make files LR - usable on the wiki) but then I'm amphibious.
This is not clear or obvious to Windows users!

Oh I don't know: there's apparently a company in California that has

Not everyone on Linux (either) is details-aware, also. (They may even
not have beards.) The complication there is that they're used to
their package managers and LR does not play nice with that. (I've

packages, something equivalent should exist for the RPM abomination as
True minority OS people usually know what they're doing - the BSDs and

So a little, easily-customized Lua script for putting things in the
