XeTeX
 
Hey,
Has anyone had any success in creating a package from the XeTeX sources? It comes with a custobm uild-xetex and install-xetex rather than the standard configure; make; make install.

I use src2pkg and trackinstall to make packages but simply running trackinstall -i='sh install-xetex' doesn't do the trick. I ended up building a package using the -JAIL option but it doesn't work properly.

Any tips?

Hmm, I haven't tried to package XeTeX but install the whole TexLive distribution which contain ready-to-run XeTeX and it's dependencies. It will install all the stuffs into /usr/local/texlive by default and is rather easy to remove. The only side effect is to download a 2.4GB DVD image. You could have a try.

I recently wrote to Patrick about that issue. He replied that it might be considered in the future. The great problem is that texlive is too big to be included untrimmed. If you are interested in texlive, I have made it into a package with a scriptq which I could send to you or post here. It works perfectly on my system. These days texlive 2008 will come out, so I will bother to package it as well.

I looked into texlive but it didn't look much more straightforward to install than XeTeX. If there's a script for compiling I'd like to take a look at it though. Thanks for all the answers B.

Ok, here follows my texlive.SlackBuild script. I used it to successfully build texlive-2007 package. Probably it will be as successful to build texlive-2008 as well.

XeTeX leaves a filelist with the install result
in 'xetex-0.996/Work/xetex-installed-files'

So I made a textfile in /var/log/packages from that :
