Heh... it is a trick I have often used when a package won't let me build
out of the source tree. Others will probably chastise me for it, but it
has worked well for me for over two years.
zlib, among others, does this too -- except I use 'shtool mkshadow'
instead, for portability (even though it is MUCH slower that lndir).
- The patch includes the autotools temp directory:
BTW, this should be patched in the generic build-script to be excluded
when running diff.
Yeah, I'll do this.
By the way, what is the policy when making pre-release chagnes like
this. Do most people bump the package number from -1 to -2 or is that
why I should be including md5sums?
I normally bump the version number. So what if the "first released
version" is cygrel 172.
