FWIW, I've sent patches that supersedes this one:


They are slightly different than Stefan's one:

 * They clearly separate the packages that can directly be changed
   to <pkg>_CONFIG_SCRIPTS without thinking, because the fixup done by
   the infrastructure is exactly the same as the one that was done by
   the package (first patch mentioned above), from the packages that
   need a little bit more thought because the fixup is different
   (second patch mentioned above).

 * They take into account the fact that my patch series slightly
   improves <pkg>_CONFIG_SCRIPTS compared to what Stefan did: in my
   proposal, <pkg>_CONFIG_SCRIPTS also automatically removes the
   <foo>-config script from $(TARGET_DIR)/usr/bin automatically, so a
   number of POST_INSTALL_TARGET_HOOKS in packages have become
   useless and are removed by my patches.
