Yes, you'll probably want to use $BASE in the other scripts as well, I 
didn't go through it to closely, so feel free to adjust as necessary and 
trigger a rebuild :)

I'm not sure what you mean by linking the default PBI folder? What would 
be an example?

Also, I've updated the PBI builder software to 2.1:


This version fixes quite a few bugs, and corrects some issues with not 
detecting the Makefile's version number properly for the PBI build. Feel 
free to grab it if you want to do some local builds.
