Does anyone know of a simple tutorial on putting together portable software packages?
I don't want to become an expert user of these tools, I just want something that allows me to provide all the environment pre-checks and standard build options. We are just talking about simple cases of programs that use standard available libraries.
My current state of knowledge is that I can just about hand code a makefile which will compile everything in the right order. This is ok for other Linux users who don't want to uninstall, or have binaries copied to the right place etc etc
