A little ingenuity helps.  For instance, anything that uses GNU
autoconf lets you select the installation directory prefix.  All you
have to do is create an empty /tmp/pkg,

make install prefix=/tmp/pkg
(cd /tmp/pkg; find . -type f -print) > package.pkg

and you're mostly there.

John Kohl sent me the makefile below; I've used it as a starting point
to create the packages I've uploaded:

#	$Id: Makefile,v 1.4 1995/01/25 01:32:39 jtkohl Exp $	
CREATE=$(PCR) -v -t /build/jtk/instmp.XXXXXX


all: MD5SUMS
	md5 $> >MD5SUMS

.SUFFIXES: .pkl .pklm .pkg .tgz

# PKL has a display/LEGAL file
.pkl.tgz: $*.README $*.oneline $*.LEGAL
	name=`cat $*.oneline`;  \
	echo $(CREATE) -d $*.README -f $*.pkl -c -'"'$$name'"' -D $*.LEGAL $* | $(SHELL)

# PKLM has a display/LEGAL file and an mtree file
.pklm.tgz: $*.README $*.oneline $*.LEGAL $*.mtree
	name=`cat $*.oneline`;  \
	echo $(CREATE) -d $*.README -f $*.pklm -m $*.mtree -c -'"'$$name'"' -D $*.LEGAL $* | $(SHELL)

# PKG has no associated display/LEGAL file
.pkg.tgz: $*.README $*.oneline
	name=`cat $*.oneline`;  \
	echo $(CREATE) -d $*.README -f $*.pkg -c -'"'$$name'"' $* | $(SHELL)
