Hi Richard,

Some comments about Virt-what:

- The manpage file (virt-what.1) is generated at building time but not removed 
by the "distclean" target in the generated Makefile.

- The "virt-what-cpuid-helper" binary is removed by the "clean" target, why 
not in the "distclean" target like the generated "virt-what" script ?

- The "virt-what-cpuid-helper" binary shouldn't be called directly by a user, 
so I think there is no reason to put it in /usr/bin. I'm about to release a 
Debian virt-what package and I moved the "virt-what-cpuid-helper" binary in 
/usr/lib/virt-what. For the moment I patched "virt-what.in" to replace the 
relative path to the "virt-what-cpuid-helper" binary by its new location. 
Could you add a %PKGLIBPATH% variable for that in the next release ?

Thank you,
Laurent Léonard
