Vim-Makefile

A lightweight non-dependency Makefile for install, uninstall, bundle, distribute Vim plugin scripts.

DESCRIPTION

I wrote this because I saw people using Rakefile to install plugin scripts. but some people dont have rake on their system. I even wrote my own perl module (VIM::Packager) to do something like this, but it has too many dependencies and need to setup cpan shell (before we have cpanminus)...

GNU make is ths most commonly used utility, which is almost in every system, so it basically doesn't have other dependencies.

This Makefile provides features to install,uninstall,bundle,distribute vim plugin. it's simple , quick and lightweight. And you can also use vim-makefile to generate vimball distribution. (More details of vimball, please see :help vimball section)

And I also appended a util vim-makefile to fetch the latest Makefile. you can simply run vim-makefile to generate the Makefile.
