  1. You can prefix with "@" so the echo itself doesn't show up
  2. If you sudo make install it creates /root/.selfspy
  3. It should use the install command to set the proper permissions after copying. Currently, the permissions come from whatever umask is, and I have umask 077 for root, meaning the installed files come out unreadable to regular users.

Thanks! (And let me know if you need any clarification or input)

Thanks! I will look use your advice when I give another go at packaging for Ubuntu 12.10

why is a makefile needed at all? is all that you really need here...

remove Makefile (Closes: #21)
the makefile doesn't bring any advantage over the normal `python install` instructions and just add an extra
dependencies. furthermore, it installs files in a non-standard
location that should generally be avoided.

it will also break Debian packaging, which will think this is a C
program and try to install it as such (and then in the wrong location).
