How to Maintain Slackware with Applications that are Built Locally?
When installing applications on Slackware that must be built locally because no *.tgz packages are available, is it better or even possible to somehow use makepkg to first build the application, then wrap it into a package, and then install the package with installpkg?
It would probably be very hard to do this especially when cmake is involved, but is this the recommended procedure? I use something called Wt-Toolkit which uses cmake to install, which usually doesn't work completely, then I do all kinds of special hacks to get a successful build, and by that time I have no idea about how to uninstall what I have done and upgrades become very hard.
Is there a better way?
