I'm trying to figure out the best way to create a set of PKGBUILDs for the
Trinity svn tree. I already have the svn source on my computer. I can check for
the latest version or svn up each module and I can have makepkg 'redownload' the
latest rev in $startdir/src, but HOW do I setup the PKGBUILD to just use what is
already in the svn tree?
I have the following in the dependencies/arts directory:
Since I already have the source, I don't want to create a new
$startdir/src/arts under the dependencies/arts directory by simply calling
makepkg in that directory. (unless there is some out-of-source trick using links
or the like) I'd like to find a way to just do a PKGBUILD to use the source in
the current directory and then create the pkg directory in another location. Is
there a standard way of handling PKGBUILDs for each module in a large tree that
can do this?
It's almost like I want to use --noextract while creating a link from src ->
./, but that just seems screwy. Anybody got a trick for doing this?
