Giving this one a try.. 

There is this macro that I don't know enough about.. I'm sure I'll have
more doubts as I package this, but this one's the only doubt currently. 

In the spec file http://hanzlici.cz/packages/fedora/panini/panini.spec ,
the build section is like this :

# --without debug hack:
CFLAGS="${CFLAGS:-%optflags}" ; export CFLAGS
%{?_without_debug:%define debug_package %{nil}}
%{?_without_debug:export RPM_OPT_FLAGS="${RPM_OPT_FLAGS//-g/}"}
%{?_without_debug:export CFLAGS="${CFLAGS//-g/}"}

This is what I got from the wiki on macros..

%{_global_cflags}     -O2 -g -pipe
%{_optflags}          %{__global_cflags} -m32 -march=i386v

Didn't help much.. I'll go through the gcc docs for explanations on the

What I want to know is why these are needed? The build file in the
source specifies only "qmake-qt4 panini.pro" to build it from source..
Nothing about gcc flags there.. Can I leave these out?

A little insight to the "?_without_debug" thing would also be helpful.



PS : Do i need to start a new topic for these queries?
