Because it needs the user to interactive with it through a web browser,
it seems to be sort of reasonable to just install the source code.

Some of my random thoughts (my 0.02 cents):

I think that you may want to consider to add a browser (e.g. links) as
its dependency (Unfortunately we does not seem to have a
CONFIGURE_DEPENDS= value!), and run it in the configure stage, if no
PACKAGE_BUILDING nor BATCH is defined, where a set of fallback default
settings should be used.  This way it would be possible to do binary
packages which can be deployed rapidly.
