Hi Tim, and others.
Greg seems to have grokked my situation, or at least has a similar
situation. I think I can use his solution.
I'll admit I have little or no experience in the finer details of
building rpm files and don't use %prep, %build or %install since I have
no idea what they do.
This is a set of C++ applications, (version controlled by subversion), a
part of a system of programs. I use the gnu make utilities, aclocal,
libtoolize, autoconf, automake, ./configure, etc. to build to
/usr/local/bin, /etc, /usr/local/lib, etc. Then I use a minimal spec
file with %description, %files and %post. My knowledge has been pieced
together from examples and have never been exposed to the "correct" way
of doing things. I've never seen any reference to the "always use a
buildroot" suggestion mentioned in previous emails.
The programs are loosely related. They are mostly server programs
accepting data from other sites and storing parts of that data in files
and a database. Another program manages the space used by these
programs and removes old data/orphans. One of the packages defines a
library of common methods/objects used by the servers.
Thanks again to all that have contributed.
Anyway this thread has been an eye opener for me and I'll have to
