Package opensource projects for AIX using mkinstallp
I prefer the AIX installp format for maintaining software on AIX. I have known for years that there is an AIX program called mkinstallp to make installp filesets but found it difficult to use.
This project is to help others - you - package your software, or any opensource package that can be built using the magic formula:
# ./configure --prefix=/opt --mandir=/usr/share/man
# make install
but rather than install on a development system create an installp fileset instead in the directory build/aix.
If the default command configure command is not enough then run configure manually, or edit the buildaix.ksh script to suit your project.
