Ok; I'm being pretty sure that we already had this discussion before.
Sorry for talking about that twice. :/

1. I'll have to edit the src/Makefile(|.in) to delete it's install:
section, which leads to an error (attempt to access my own
arborescence while building).

2. It could be forgotten if some day graphthing relies on plugin or
whatever, and then need some plugin installation...

I think that I'll prefer a patch stored in debian/, neither irritating
for you nor for other platforms, and if one day it does not apply, I'll
have a look to the install: section in the Makefiles.

Your thoughts? :)
