Thank you. That certainly clarifies matters and gets us a little further

Thanks for the pointers on making Stata packages the right way. I'll
certainly try to make our code at least build a skeleton Stata package
file for distribution, because that would be more useful.

If we do choose to make binaries grabbable with -net get- ourselves,
we'll probably only be able to build for LINUX and LINUX64 initially.
