[Denemo-devel] Problems with 0.8.0 tarball when generating Fedora RPM fi

I have had several issues in generating clean (ie passes rpmlint) Fedora RPM files for the 0.8.0 distribution tarball.

The first issue is the most important. As of 0.8.0 Denemo is linked using the -rpath flag. This is not permitted in Fedora.

Why is the -rpath flag being used? What are the alternatives.

Two issues concern the actions tree.

1> There are backup copies (ie ending in ~) files in this tree. As they are not in git this is probably a production issue with the tarball. Note that Fedora requires packages to be based on the released version of the tarball from the upstream site where such a file exists.

2> In the current git version, a problem involves the install-data-hook section of the Makefile. It does a "chmod -R 755 ${DESTDIR}/$(datadir)/${PACKAGE}/actions" command. This means the exec bits are set for the text XML files. Text files with the exec bits set and not starting with a shebang (#!) is considered an error.
