CheckInstall

Description

CheckInstall project keeps track of all files installed by a "make install" or equivalent, creates a Slackware, RPM, or Debian package with those files, and adds it to the installed packages database, allowing for easy package removal or distribution. When make install is done, CheckInstall will create a Slackware, RPM or Debian compatible package and install it with Slackwares installpkg, "rpm -i" or Debians "dpkg -i" as appropriate, so you can view its contents with pkgtool ("rpm -ql" for RPM users or "dpkg -l" for Debian) or remove it with removepkg ("rpm -e"|"dpkg -r"). Aditionally, this script will leave you a copy of the installed package in the source directory so you can install it wherever you want, which is my second motivation: I dont have to compile the same software again and again every time I need to install it on another box)..
