Does anyone know if the install or package.install supports
installing the source, not just the headers? From the documentation
it's clear that one could separately install the executables,
libraries and headers, but I can't determine if it's possible to
install the source that the libraries are built from.

The reason I want this capability is that we have two end users, one
that relinks the executables with our libraries and has no need for
the source. The other does a full system build from the source.
It's this second use case that I'd like to try to solve, possibly
using the install or package.install if they can support it.
