If possible, could the fltk.spec in the 1.1.x cvs snapshot be update with each snapshot? I'm not sure if this is possible, but it would be nice to be able to do rpmbuild -ta fltk-*.tar.gz when the snapshots are released. My request is for both the 1.1.x and 2.0 cvs snapshots.

Currently, I have to hack the fltk.spec for each snapshot and repack the fltk directory.

Yes, this is possible, and I'll make the necessary changes to the snapshot scripts when I get a chance...

I'm not sure if this is really an issue, but I thought it would be worth mentioning in case others have problems with their fltk RPMs.

In SUSE 9.3, the /usr/lib/rpm/rpmrc has optflags set to "-O2 -g". So, rpmbuild uses these optimisation to compile the fltk library. This results in  "fltk-config --cxxflags" to return "-O2 -g" which includes adding the debug symbols while, at the same time, optimising. This makes debugging troublesome because the execution flow may not match that in the source code.

This only effects the fltk library compilation when rpmbuild is used. When manually configured and compiled, the fltk library is created using -Os.

The fltk.spec file referrs to CXXFLAGS="RPM_OPT_FLAGS" which, on my system, expands to: -O2 -g -march=i586 -mcpu=i686 -fmessage-length=0

My fix was to use vi to edit /usr/lib/rpm/rpmrc and replace "-O2 -g" with "-O2 -g0".

The best solution to the -O2 -g problem was to change the fltk.spec file. I replaced CFLAGS="$RPM_OPTS_FLAGS" with CFLAGS="". I did this for CXXFLAGS and LDFLAGS.

This allows fltk-config to be used for debug and release builds.
