Building Wanpipe from source

Sangoma's wanpipe is one of the absolutely worst maintained tarballs ever released, worse than nvidia, fglrx and vmware-ws combined. ./Setup is one humongous unreadable shell script that is unusable for chrooted package builds, and naturally, Kbuild is eschewed bigtime although not completely, leaving no way to get src/lip compiled without lots of frustrating guessing on what the required command line would be. With Sangoma support showing no signs of accepting even the simple patches to fix DESTDIR support, outlook for cure is more than dim.
