Looks quite straightforward -- is it supposed to work for other
distros than Fedora?

I'm using ArchLinux and it fails with this error:

[guerry at bzg sugar-build]$ make build
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/home/guerry/install/git/sugar-build/commands/build", line 6, in <module>
    import common
  File "/home/guerry/install/git/sugar-build/commands/common.py", line 8, in <module>
    from devbot import main
  File "/home/guerry/install/git/sugar-build/devbot/main.py", line 4, in <module>
    from devbot import config
  File "/home/guerry/install/git/sugar-build/devbot/config.py", line 58
    print "The source directory has unexpected content, please " \
SyntaxError: invalid syntax
make: *** [build] Erreur 1

I would *love* to install Sugar this way!

Thanks for your help,
