Compiled and installed gpg, how to tar or package it and install on another Liuuxbox?

I have downloaded tarballs of gpg2 (gnupg-2.0.16) and its dependencies, compiled and installed them one by one on my Suse 10 box.

Now I want to install gpg on another suse 10 box. Instead of doing the compiling/installing steps once again, is there a good way I can package gpg2, or tar it on my server, so it can be easily installed on the other server?

When I installed gpg and its dependencies, they were installed everywhere, /usr/local/lib, /usr/local/bin, my download dir etc.

Maybe during the compling, I hould specify a path for the gpg and dependencies to be installed, then tar the whole directory. how to do the first part?

This is a duplicate post, in Suse and Software forums. Please only post in one forum.

To answer your question: I think you can simply copy the build directory to the other computer and do 'make install'. Since all the files are already compiled, it should just install the binaries where they belong. This is assuming you have exactly the same OS version on both computers. If not, just compile the whole thing over again, it couldn't take too long.
