I'm not sure if I understand this. I know I could add targets in Makevars or Makerules, but do you means something else? I also need to build some executables and move then into exec/, which I think also implies I need to change the default target in src/. Isn't a Makefile the only way to do that? (I know you said you won't go here, but now I' curious.)

Thanks, that fixed it!
