Yes. I have. The slashpackage-style build instructions, which are of
course /not/ Debian-specific nor even /Linux-/specific, are actually
right there on the source package WWW page.

The only thing that is Debian-specific is the step that gets one from a
/built/ slashpackage-style package to Debian binary packages. This is
in the supplied |package/debian/rules| command. But even that is not
actually Debian-specific, as there is a similar |package/bsd/rules|
command that does the same thing on the BSDs.

Thomas Caravia constructed the Archnosh PKGBUILD the same way. It does
the slashpackage-style build, then takes the built slashpackage-style
package and parcels it out into a set of Arch binary packages, with a
light dusting of patches to a handful of service bundles. It even
mostly re-uses the Debian maintenance scripts.

(On that note, Thomas: You may enjoy the start that I have made in 1.37
to a _Packages and Ports_ chapter in the /nosh Guide/. Yes, I currenly
plan for the |.p|/|.func| system to get at least a short mention.)

I was only expecting you to read the manual for doco on the common
control/status API that you were interested in, not build the software. (-:
