This is obsolete now. I decided to drop all backends except Source for
4.4. The packages and backend system isn't mature enough to handle all
the package resolving yet. 

Source installation is almost finished except for the installation
itself (which requires installing to a temporary directory, tracking
the installed files and moving to the installation prefix). Ah, and
deinstallation also is missing so far.

Apart from that - do we really need different build schemes for the 4.4
release or can we just always use "./configure && make && make
install"? This would make things even easier.
