I'm sorry I missed the discussion, but isn't this just a matter of
documentation? The Makefile.common file could easily have comments at
the top of the file indicating which package Makefile include it. I
remember doing this for several packages that I've maintained in the
past, and it worked very well.
I don't think I want even more magic for determining the package name,
as it gets kind of complex as it is.
