I have a makefile to build my program then a makefile to build my rpm package in addition to an rpm spec file to create the rpm. Right now the spec file is manually maintained. However for future flexibility I am curious is there any way other then having the makefile echo into a spec file that is generate on each run. To have make smartly build an rpm spec file?

  • I'm sure there is a way to do this, but you are way too vague here and I'm guessing that is why there are few answers. A suggestion is to write the smallest makefiles and rpm spec that demonstrates the gist of what you are doing. With that, someone like me might be able to add the few additional lines to the Makefile. – rocky Oct 12 '15 at 1:00
