Ah! The new version works, thank you.
I built LifeLines with
src2pkg -D -DEST -p=/usr/local -C lifelines-3.0.62.tar.bz2
and all is well with the world.
My standards are that non-distribution software be installed in /usr/local
; "packaged" software; e.g., OpenOffice, Scribus and the like I install in /opt
. Been doing things that way for... cripes! decades, already. Lordy, time do fly when you're having fun, eh? I've tried to follow what I think of as the Bell Labs, System V, Solaris model by doing that and, so far, it's been less a pain than installing add-ons in /usr
(at least for me). For a long time the checkinstall
utility did a nice job, but, well, that's the end of that apparently; scr2pkg
seems the next step in the evolutionary trail (and, now that it works, a step in the right direction, methinks).
Thank you for both the development effort and for the help.
