I want to build and compress lots of source packages to slackware like packages.
And I know that Slackwares makepkg is creating a script for all symlinks for that package and removes the symlink.
So now I want to know if there is any problem with tar:ing a symlink?
if I do like this
make DESTDIR=/fakeroot install
tar cfz . ../package-1.1.tar.gz (or something like that)
Will the symlinks uncompress correctly when I want to install the package? or is there a chance the symlinks may be broken during unpacking?
