[rrd-users] Updated RPM spec file for CVS version

I have made an updated RPM spec file for the CVS snapshot version that
is working for me on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3.  It builds 3 RPMs:
rrdtool (with the documentation, command line programs, and shared
libraries), rrdtool-perl (the perl modules), and rrdtool-devel (include
files and static libraries).  I've included the spec file below.

How does this look?  It works good enough for me (I've got Cricket up
and running), but does it seem "sane" enough? :-)

I've also built the required cgilib as an RPM.

The SRPMS and spec files are available at:

I don't speak for anybody but myself - that's enough trouble.

It is pretty easy to gather status information from all sorts of things,
ranging from the temperature in your office to the number of octets which
have passed through the FDDI interface of your router. But it is not so
trivial to store this data in a efficient and systematic manner. This is
where RRDtool kicks in. It lets you log and analyze the data you gather from
all kinds of data-sources (DS). The data analysis part of RRDtool is based
on the ability to quickly generate graphical representations of the data
values collected over a definable time period.
