Description pavel.janik 1998-12-30 09:41:24 UTC

Emacs source package have some bugs:

- signal patch is (really?) not needed according to DaveM
for Emacs >20.2

- doesn't contain leim-package so it is useless for
non-english languages

- french description of main package is missing (I'm not
frenchthouhg ;-)

- why --with-pop is not in nox package?

- make install wants install-info which is not in our PATH
(so add /sbin to PATH before make install)

- some non-existent files are tried to strip (put ls -l
before for cycle of stripping)

- patches can be cleaned up so no find . -name *orig is
needed (see My
patche are updated for 20.3

- binary file emacs and emacs-20.3 are the same - symlink
can be sufficient, I think

- HOSTTYPE variable is not used in build section

- build of nox and X11 can be grouped together (configure
has almost the same parameters which can be in some variable
- e.g. COMMON_FLAGS etc.)

- what is the reason for XPUREDEF and PUREDEF variables???

Sorry for bothering with this, but I need czech language
support which really is in emacs-20.3 that comes from (well, with leim installed) but redhat's is
useless now.

Fixed in dist-6.0/emacs-20.3-5. (Look for emacs-leim package).
