The previous patch for supporting developer RPM builds was useless for
cases where you want to use mock for building. This new patch makes
things more friendly for mock builds. It also eliminates the need to
run configure before trying to build the RPMs, which was needed
previously just to build the Makefile. More details are in the patch
Please review the attached patch that adds the ability for convenient
developer RPM builds. Details are in the patch description.
Note that my patch does not include any changes that will be made by
running autogen.sh. I did this to make the review easier instead of
cluttering things up with tons of configure changes. I will run
autogen.sh before committing once the review and any necessary code
adjustments are complete.
Once this is checked in, I will get the nightly builds converted over to
use this new build target. This should result in much less confusing
package names for the nightly builds. Here is an example of a package
name produced by these changes:
