I know. I've used m4 extensively, as well as autotools. Standard fare in
the life of a Gentoo dev...

Here we go.

The whole notion here is that I don't want there to be a "build step",
ever. This whole platform-file wonkiness was an unfortunate necessity, but
I don't want to follow that further. There's "running", which is
src/password-store.sh, and there's "installing", which is putting that file
as /usr/bin/pass, and that's it. Simplicity is key. Somewhere along the way
I had to sneak in a little sed into the "installing", which is a bummer,
but, bleh.
