This is a little older than I expected (2007 August 11) even though
Axel said he just uploaded it. Not a contradiction, though: he could
have built it August 11 even though he uploaded it today.
I didn't want to use "yum install atrpms-rpm-config" (as Axel
- my release (FC5) is not supported by atrpms, so I doubt the yum
would have succeeded.
- I wanted to see what I was installing before I installed it.
I did fetch the SRPM when I found it. I built it and then installed

I don't know which is more likely to work for me: your package or
- Yours has FC6 in its name. Not what I want for FC5.
- Yours and Axels cannot co-exist: there are files with the same
pathname that are different.

- yours writes /et/rpm/macros which seems scary (I don't know the implications)
I've created an atrpms user on my machine and wish to put the atrpms
rpm macros into ~atrpms/.rpmmacros, not in some global setting that
would affect rpmbuilds by all users.
- a superficial glance at Axel's leads me to beleive that it does not
define lib_package whereas yours does
So I'm going to try your package, with /etc/rpm/macros renamed
/etc/rpm/macros.atrpms and copied into ~atrpms/.rpmmacros

Sorry, I had a lot of other real-time stuff going on. So I'm back
when it is the middle of the night (2:30 here in Toronto, 3:30 in
Rio (I infer that http://w3.impa.br/~roma/ is your page)).
I'm building mythtv-0.20.1-161.src.rpm in the context of your macros.
It will take about an hour (if it works) but I'm not going to wait up
to watch it.
Thanks, Paulo and Axel, for your help.
