I started working on building Atlas for OpenCSW (Solaris). We use a build system based on GNU make, which drives all the stages of package creation. The main build description files are Makefiles.
So, a Makefile in the current directory where an OpenCSW package maintainer is working, contains all the work on a given package. I started working on porting Atlas, and at some point I ran the configure script, like this:
Makefile checksums files gar work
$ ./work/solaris8-sparc/build-isa-sparcv8/ATLAS/configure --help
checksums files gar work
The configure script has deleted the Makefile which contained all my work for packaging Atlas. You can imagine I'm feeling somewhat grumpy about this. Would you please adjust the configure script so it doesn't delete people's Makefiles?
