Hi Alan,

Being fairly new to RPM-building (haven't yet developed the mindset that
rpm-specs-MUST-encapsulate-configure-scripts), I think the "make rpm"
approach is neat.  I've seen it done on, for instance, the LT_modem
(closed-source Lucent soft-modem driver) project and meant to examine

Perhaps I missed the link in your earlier posts (if so, my apologies),
but could you please provide a link to your project that uses this build
procedure?  I'd like to see how you did it.
