        Wow!!! Please, if you can make it work, I'd be so happy!! I
played around with amiga scripts for about 7 hours this weekend to
be able to generate a release, but i still need to do some manual
'hacking' to create a release!!

You have much courage in tackling the make C source code!!
I wish you good luck!
