Thanks for getting round to looking at it.

No, I'm not sure it needs it, but I AM sure that when installed to something
other than /usr/local, it doesn't need /usr/local
I err-ed on the side of minimal change, as impact-analysis of library
linkages isn't a strong-point.

Thanks and fair-enough.

Even if it's specifically to do with SVN?   


Personally, I see the benefits of going further and fully integrating the
RPM building process into the 'make' process, so that you could do a 'make
rpm' (or even a 'make deb' or 'make pkg') as the end-point of the build
process.  Makes the standardisation/management of installed files WAY
easier.... And backing-out an install/upgrade as simple as 'rpm -e'.   

In-fact, if anyone else (other than me) would like to see that too,
speak-up, and I'll see what I can do. :-)
