There is now some support for packages supporting --prefix only (and not DESTDIR), but its use is discouraged (requires --force on the command line, or a confirmation in the GUI).

This works by redirecting prefix, so it does not work with packages with broken prefix handling (for example, packages which substitute prefix directly in the generated Makefile).

I think that we could create another way to manage packages that was't installed by the GNU Source Installer directly.

configure script available or generable through autogen.sh or similar,
generated Makefile DESTDIR correctly supported

It would be nice to improve support for currently "non-conforming" source packages. At least an installed files list should be possible.
