Dear diary, on Fri, Apr 22, 2005 at 03:55:21AM CEST, I got a letter
where Chris Wright <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> told me that...
> Here's a simple spec file to do rpm builds.  It's against the
> latest Makefile (which has the s/BINDIR/bindir/ change).  I've used
> DESTDIR, although it's not clear it's meant to stay in the Makefile.
> For now, there's no dynamic (, for example) update to the

Thanks, applied. I'll gladly yet you maintain this file, but...

I doubt this is actually what you want. I suppose you want

make DESTDIR=$RPM_BUILD_ROOT prefix=/usr/local install

instead. This may not matter now, but might well in future when we stuff
some of the helper/library scripts to some lib/ or share/ directory, and
will actually rewrite some paths somewhere based on $prefix during make
