[packages] List of packages to be archived
gpt-pkg Creates binary packages from an installation. The
installation needs to contain GPT packaging data files. An
installation is created by running gpt-build on a collection of
source packages or bundles.
FILES IN PGM PACKAGES
Installed files such as executables that are found in pgm and
ptm_static packages will overwrite one another when multiple flavors
of the same package are built by gpt-build. To preserve multiple
flavors of these files, gpt-build copies them into flavored
subdirectories. For example, the program $GLOBUS_LOCATION/bin/foo
will be copied into the location $GLOBUS_LOCATION/bin/gcc32/shared if
it was built with dynamically with the gcc32 flavor. gpt-pkg
retrieves these files and copies them back to their proper location
before packaging them. Thus gpt-pkg will also overwrite these files
as it archives the different flavors of a pgm package.
Specify the directory in which the installed files currently live. If
this argument is not supplied, the value of the environment variable
GLOBUS_LOCATION is used instead.
Packages all of the binaries in an installation.
Creates a package in the native packaging format. Currently only rpm
This should be set to the path to your GLOBUS_LOCATION. GPT will use a
value of ``/usr/grid'' if this option is not specified.
Provides an alternate copyright label for the rpms. The default is
whatever GPT was configured with.
Prints out all of the build messages.
Appends all of the build messages to FILE. This option also sets -verbose.
Print a brief help message and exits.
Prints the manual page and exits.
Prints the version of GPT and exits.
pgm and pgm_static packages
gpt-build copies the files for these packages in a flavored location
because different flavors of these types of packages will conflict
with each other. gpt-pkg restores these files when it packages pgm
and pgm_static types.
