new spec file

hi all,

new spec file 2.99.55-5


		Howto make an RPM of ZMailer

	originally by Xose Vazquez <xose@wanadoo.es>
	updated by Rik van Riel <riel@conectiva.com>

1. Get the zmailer source code, either CVS, from:
   ftp://ftp.funet.fi/pub/unix/mail/zmailer/src or

2. Decompress the zmailer source.
	# tar xvfz zmailer-{version}.tar.gz


A. Type, in the zmailer-{version} directory:
	# ./configure	(the outcome of this isn't important)
	# make scrub
	# make dist
	# make dist	(yes, you need to type this twice)

B. Bzip2 the resulting zmailer-{version}.tar file


3. Copy the zmailer zmailer-{version}.tar.gz or bz2 to

4. Install the spec package :
	# cd packaging/rpm/
	# rpm -i zmailer-{version}.nosrc.rpm
   or decompress it with:
	# rpm2cpio zmailer-{version}.nosrc.rpm | cpio -i -d
	# mv zmailer.spec /usr/src/redhat_or_rpm/SPECS 
	# mv * /usr/src/redhat_or_rpm/SOURCES

5. If your version of zmailer is different from the number of the
   section "Version:" in the zmailer.spec, you need to put there
   the new version number.

6. Let RPM create the source and binary package for you.
	# rpm -ba /usr/src/redhat_or_rpm/SPECS/zmailer.spec
   You can add the --target=arch-vendor-os to get 
   binary files more optimized.	Take a look to /usr/lib/rpm/ 
   to know what put.

   RPM packages will be created under /usr/src/redhat_or_rpm/SRPMS/
   (src) and  /usr/src/XXX/RPMS/ (bin+doc)

7. Install the zmailer RPMs ;)
	# rpm -ivh /usr/src/redhat_or_rpm/RPMS/i386/zmailer-{version}.i386.rpm
	# rpm -ivh /usr/src/redhat_or_rpm/RPMS/i386/zmailer-doc-{version}.i386.rpm

8. Finish the configuration by editing the following:

	o /etc/zmailer/*

    For more information about the zmailer configuration, read
    the documents in /usr/share/doc/zmailer-{version} ...
