How can I see a list of flags/options used to configure and compile a certain package in yum, without having to install it first? Say apache, for example.
$ yum list available httpd Available Packages httpd.x86_64 2.2.15-15.el6.centos.1 base
I'm running CentOS 6.3.
I followed @jsbillings answer, but first I had to add the CentOS Source repository, as it doesn't seem to be included by default.
Added the following to /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo
[base-source] name=CentOS-$releasever - Base - Source baseurl=http://vault.centos.org/6.3/os/Source
