Will every package that uses Makefile.autotools.in need to be modified
to define the target installed file? If so, would you like to prepare a
large patch? :) Alternatively, perhaps $(2)_TARGET_INSTALL_TARGET could
be fall back to the old definition if the new variable is not supplied,
using some ifeq logic.
Thanks for working on this!
