autopkg.pl 1.5

autopkg.pl provides a tool that generates Slackware packages from source tarballs, RPMs, and debs.
autopkg.pl provides a tool that generates Slackware packages from source tarballs, RPMs, and debs.

The main goal of autopkg.pl is to build software and make a Slackware package without having to make a build script of some kind.

A single config file can specify the compile-time options for every program compiled with autopkg.pl.

The packages are created in their own build directories and never installed unless you want them installed.

A setuid-root wrapper allows normal users to create packages (with proper user/group listings and permissions) and optionally install them depending upon a list of trusted users.

Optional "hint files" can also help a broken or not-that-well-set-up package to be compiled and packaged properly (samples included).

What's New in This Release:

Renamed --force-show-help to --force-configure to avoid confusion.
Support for Imakefiles
Fixed a doc-installing permissions bug with sautopkg.pl
Support for creating packages from zip files (i.e. jasper)
autogen.sh only run if configure and makefile not found
Fixed possible bug with perl module installing
Useful new shell script functionality for hint files (see README.HINTS file for details).
Updated the README to take some of the crap out of autopkg.pl's usage message and reflect the right version number.
Renamed the sautopkg.pl wrapper to sautopkg as it's not a perl script.
