some RPM problems


The good news is that I have collected as much info as possible on
Squeak and that I am well on the way packaging them.

The bad news is that I have some problems with RPM.

"Maximum RPM" learnt me that I can change the directory in which rpm
expects "BUILD" etc. to be by stating "topdir: <dir>" in a ~/.rpmrc
file. When I do this, RPM reacts with: "bad option "topdir" at

"Max" also learnt me that there is a command line option for this:
--buildroot. This option is simply ignored (the second thing RPM does is
"cd /usr/src/redhat/BUILD" instead of to <mydir>/BUILD).

These are my questions for now. I hope you can help me. Thanks to the
work that has been done on Squeak with Debian, Squeak is going to be
quite nice at ours, too.
