Then please, finally, name your problems, so someone can help you to find solutions.

The old Makefile system did not work well for packaging and made it
unneccessarily difficult to build plugins from outside the VDR source. It also 
often required manual steps to be done after installing the plugin (copy 
resources or something like that) which can be done in the "install" target, 
now. So in my opinion the new system is a big benefit for 2.0.
