No, they are not simple bash scripts, and I have created more than 20 ebuilds. 
You have to unpack the sources, compile them if needed and install it to a 
temporary directory (which is sandboxed). I haven't seen any option on 
setup-plt that allows me to install on a particular directory. Furthermore 
I've seen .plts that try to *change* installed files, and that is 
.debs and .rpms are just the same, except that the binaries are packaged in 
one file that can be installed on other computers (something that can be done 
with Gentoo as well, but it is more complicated).

I don't want to make .debs only of MrMySQL, I want to package other software 
as well.

Thank you.
