Hmm, I don't think I've EVER tried to build an RPM from OUTSIDE the RPM
Source directory before.....I don't know what that will do.

Nope, see below.

$ cd $HOME/rpms/sources
$ svn co http://summersoft.fay.ar.us:81/repos/neon/tags/neon-0.23.9-1
[it checks out the tag]
$ cd neon-0.23.9-1
$ make

.......Yep, seems to work fine for me on RedHat 9.

So.......what was it you were getting confused about? :-)

Maybe you were expecting an already generated tar.gz file? Just look in
the directory you checked out and you'll see the checked out neon tree.
The Makefile in the top-level generates the neon.tar.gz file necessary for the RPM build and
automatically calls the rpmbuild *.spec after it generates the *.tar.gz

Hopefully that clears everything up?

How could it be made clearer, maybe a README file or something?

If you can figure out how to get apr/apr-util/apache to build under RedHat
9, please send me patches diffed against my current httpd-2.0.46-0.1 tree
in Subversion. I think I've got an angle of attack but haven't yet had
time to try it. Until then, I can't compile a completely RedHat 9
generated RPM.
