- scripts/make_distribution_archives.py: New file.
This standalone Python script should be equivalent to running `make dist` with the Make-based build system, with the following minor differences:
- Since `make distclean` doesn't always clean up `objs/` properly, `make dist` archives may contain some stale binaries like `objs/.libs/libfreetype.so.6` or others.
- `config.guess` and `config.sub` are not updated unless option `--gnu-config-dir=DIR` is used to specify the location of these files.
- Some bits of the auto-generated reference documentation may appear in slightly different order, probably due to issues related to mkdocs and docwriter.
As an example, the call
creates the following files under `/tmp/freetype2-dist`:
