Can I automate the tar, ./configure, make, and make install of about 50 packages?
I decided I wanted to try Gnome for once, so I went to www.gnome.org,
and noticed a lack of Binaries. What a shock! :) So, I went to the source section, and there were about 100 source downloads. So, I downloaded them all. And what does it want me to do? tar xvfz, ./configure, make, and make install ALL THE PACKAGES to the same --prefix. I have a PII233, and that would take me all day to sit there are watch. Can I automate this process?
