I like most do not like all that DarwinPorts and Fink bring in when
you install them. So, I have been developing my own scripts as
well. Currently, I use a model for the script based on the actions
that DarwinPorts does when it installs packages, but using bash
scripts rather than tcl which I never really liked. You may view
some of them at http://idisk.mac.com/kranki-Public if you are
interested. mkLibexpat.sh is my primary script where I develop new
features and then push them back into the other scripts.
I have not tried to make any of them universal installations nor have
I added binary installs, currently just source installs. I own 7
macs of varying types and running these scripts has really not been
much of a burden. Besides, I just didn't feel that I wanted them
taking up twice as much harddrive space, but I am not opposed to
adding that ability to them if needed.
They were written by me and have not had any sort of review by others
which I would like. So, even if you do not want to use them, but
review them, I would appreciate the feedback. I am going to use them
whether anyone else does or not until I find something better.
Anyway, they are not copyrighted because they are not that
important. However, I do believe that it is important to provide the
build scripts being used to create the binaries that are being
distributed and to distribute them with the binaries. They provide
an educational benefit as well as a potential source of improvements
if made available. I would be willing to provide some time to help
in creating and maintaining them in collaboration with others. Just
let me know.
