Or the ones used by DejaVu, Liberation, Andrei Panov fonts, etc;a=blob_plain;f=source/Makefile

Well, I wouldn't mind merging one Makefile example in
fontpackages-devel, if it was clean and complete enough.
I think the basic requirement is to have the standard build, install,
dist targets, ability to set destdir, ability to set the version in
fonts, and reasonable Makefile syntax (not a script shell with loops
maskerading as makefile, a real Makefile with implicit targets).

The DejaVu Makefile is probably a good point to start from, except its
dual-generation target (lgc and non lgc) has complexified it a bit too
much (BTW the coverage scripts in fontpackages-tools could be used to
replace the ones DejaVu uses).
