This command is an improved implementation of the standard 'makerpm' command,

Enhanced features over the original PEAR "makerpm" command include:

- Allows more advanced customisation of the generated package name
- Allows virtual Provides/Requires that differ in format from the package name
- tries to intelligently distinguish between PEAR and PECL when generating
