Sorry -I just saw your post on aosl -- glad you have worked out
what I said :-)

Also Pat does not like the use of a modified makepkg -- he (and I) cannot
see why it's necessary.  This is one of the reasons he put checkinstall
into Slackware to begin with -- he was having reports about broken
(broken in what sense I don't remember), and part of this was due to
the patched 'makepkg'.

If you were to use Slackware's makepkg, he'd be happier -- I couldn't say
whether he'd reinclude it again but it'd go some way to doing so.
