iterators don't appear to work on the copy stanza? This sure would allow me to reduce the length of the stanza (I have a number of options of each file, so it gets rather long).

I was hoping to do something like:

files = ( /etc/hosts.allow:/etc/hosts.deny:/etc/inetd.conf:...)
$(mf)$(files)   dest=$(files)

then repeat this for another set of files with slightly different options.

Over quite a number of files, I only use about 5 different sets of options.

Did I just get the syntax wrong? Is there another way to apply a bunch options to a set of files without expanding them all out?
