Hi John,

Thanks for the patch.  Keep 'em comin'. :)

I think I'm going to expand on your patch a little and create some
specific sub-targets for environments where the database and/or
Apache/Jabber services live on remote machines.

'make debian_drone' will build the core set of perquisites required by
all servers.

'make debian_lead' will expand on 'make debian_drone' by adding Apache
and Ejabberd.

'make debian' will expand on 'make debian_lead' by adding Postgres and
related packages.  This would still be the default "put everything on
one machine" build target.

Sound OK?
