Re: [Xen-devel] [PATCH] Fix tools makefile to properly check for external tools

Ok ,thinking about the comment in tools/check/Makefile is so that one
could install stuff in "dist" directory. But our networking scripts have
no checks at all to see if (for example) "brctl" is even there...it just
silently installs. So given this when would one check that we have
everything need installed. Also I will submit a patch to add a check to
the network script to see if the tools are actually on the system.

Hi Jerone,

I had a patch that did that a while ago, but the feeling at
the time was that it wasn't the right place - it should be in
a make check or some top level script (?).

It's not just that script, it's all the rest, too. The con was
that somethings you can't roll back from (previous scripts),
and so even putting them at the top of each script wasn't
