Dear Nils, 
                Thanks for all the constructive comments. Everything's
fine but only 2 glitches remained: In the %configure option, I can
remove all the options bar  the --prefix one. i.e It must be

%configure --prefix=%{_prefix}  

at least or else it will install in /usr/local instead of  /usr.

Nope... At least not for all packages. And some packages have to be
compiled twice so that I can an rpm out with the %makeinstall option.


%{__make} %{?mflags_install} DESTDIR=%{buildroot} install

really remains the best option at least for the time being, unless
somebody wants to patch all the autofoo stuff, which is more
