There is an internal repository that contains the build and the
distribution scripts.  One specific file has the rules about what is
distributed in which package.  For the C part, the rules just specify
what should be included, for the Scheme part, the code actually verify
that dependencies are all satisfied.

          ((lambda (x) (x x)) (lambda (x) (x x)))          Eli Barzilay:
