I've not examined the code in detail, but I like the idea of the make_install action type :)
What happens about error catching (e.g. the make gives a non-zero return code)?
P.S. Is the further value in adding another action for "./configure [args]" as well?
Currently, there is no error changing. Mainly due to the fact that I do not know, how to react on errors. Imho a nice error caching mechanism is missing in TS, especially to communicate with the user. Any ideas?
Like the idea, the implementation looks good. Is there a tool in the test tool shed I can test it out against? I would be happy to run that test and then officially 'approve' this.
If have updated every pull request now with a test toolshed repository. Unfortunately, I tool the readline repository as example, so it might happen that the r_environment test requires the autoconf patch. Sorry.
I see there is now another new pull request for the configure idea :)
