Hmm. It's sort of sad when I make the effort to read the entire thread

Why not just have mknetrel use a "mknetrel" file in the source directory
if it finds one? I've been thinking about doing this for a while.
Then there is no need to decide on a location for the "extra" files.
They'll be bundled with the src, in the same directory.
Yeah -- what he said!
Now, stop me if I get too 'method 2ish', but:
All of this assumes that the -src tarball will be "ready to go" --
patched and everything. You unpack it, and voila' : you've got
foo-1.2/foo.c (patches applied, so it compiles on cygwin)
This is counter to the RPM (and mebbe deb?) concept of "shipping
pristine sources". Is there some way to do this?
unpack -src, giving:
and then running 'mknetrel -@ foo' does what one would expect? ('-@' is
placeholder 'cause I can't remember the correct options right now)
