Building a KMess package

The rpmbuild command is suitable for distibutions using the RPM package
format. This includes distributions like SuSE, Mandriva, Redhat and Fedora.
A KMess RPM package can be created with the command:

rpmbuild -tb kmess-<version>.tar.gz

The rpmbuild command runs a full source-based installation, but builds a
package instead of installing KMess. The final package can be found in a
subfolder of /usr/src/packages/ or /usr/src/rpm/. You can use that package
to install KMess.

If you have a clean, newly-installed system, without any KDE upgrades, you
can share the package with others. Make sure users can always download the
source package too, as required by the GPL license. However, we recommend
to use our KMess Installer whenever possible.

Tip: when you install the autopackage-devel tools before building the RPM
package, the rpm spec script uses apbuild to create a cleaner binary.
