Fedora Update Notification

Name        : auto-destdir
Product     : Fedora 11
Version     : 1.11
Release     : 1.fc11
URL         : http://www.dwheeler.com/auto-destdir
Summary     : Automate DESTDIR support for "make install"
Description :
Auto-DESTDIR is a set of programs for POSIX/Unix/Linux systems that helps
automate program installation from source code.  It can be useful for
creating native packages (e.g., RPM or deb), or for installing programs
from source code to be managed by tools like GNU stow.

The Auto-DESTDIR tools (run-redir and make-redir) redirect file installations
so that the installed files are placed inside the the $DESTDIR directory,
even if the provided makefile doesn't support the DESTDIR convention.
In most cases you can simply replace "make install" with
"make-redir DESTDIR=... install".

Update Information:

Minor improvements, including the addition of a new wrapper.

ChangeLog:

* Wed Sep  9 2009 David A. Wheeler <dwheeler , at, dwheeler dot com> 1.11-1
- Added wrapper for "touch"
- Auto-create DESTDIR directory if it doesn't exist and something is redirected.
- Simplified implementation.
- Documentation: Fixed make-redir(1) so it describes how to use in RPM spec
  files, more override info, note that it's useful with GNU stow, etc.
- make-redir now overrides MKDIR_P and mkdir_p by default
