And finally, I have adjusted to using the following pattern, and found that it
has improved maintainability a great deal. It applies to DEPENDS and RDEPENDS
as well. Yes, it is a bit tedious, but the benefits far outweigh the cost

FILES_fooz += " lib/"
FILES_fooz += " /usr/lib/"
FILES_fooz += " /usr/bin/fooz"
FILES_fooz += " /bin/fooz"
FILES_fooz += " /usr/share/fooz"
pedantically speaking, since you're using "+=", you don't need those
leading spaces.
