Eh, eh, I know this old story, not everybody loves RPM but, on my own, I think
it's extremely useful (if you write a decent specfile) not only for novice

Yes, I've forgotten to underline this fix. I've modified ONLY this line in the
perl plug-in dir because the "po" files are installed by the main Makefile, so
the make install will install them twice. By disabling the install section into
the main Makefile would have required changes also into the perl/po Makefile,
while my main goal was to let the perl stuff almost unchanged.

Eh, eh, yeah, surely I can write down a better test code however I've used the
same style used into the whole script, I suppose this stuff was done for
compatibility issues so I don't minded if it was ugly or too long. ;)
The "local_target" hack is a trick that makes the perl plug-in installing in
the "old" way (gimp <= 1.1.25).
