Review Request: Xbae - Matrix,Caption,Input widgets for Motif

Spec URL: http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/xbae/Xbae.spec
SRPM URL: http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/xbae/Xbae-4.60.4-1.src.rpm
The Xbae widget set was in fedora 1, and dropped in fedora 2. I repackaged it for inclusion in fedora 5-extras.
This package provides the Motif matrix and caption. The matrix widget
is widely used and will display up to four billion rows of data in a
spreadsheet-like form. The caption widget is a simple Motif manager
widget that associates a label with a child. You will need to have
either Motif or LessTif installed in order to use Xbae's widgets.
I have allready proposed Xbae here:
I think my proposal is a bit better since it is simple and also
package the examples. But I should update to the latest version.
If you really want to maintain Xbae, no problem I'll do a patch
to your spec.
Also I depend on Wcl to verify that the corresponding example
I don't really want to maintain the spec file, I already work on the sources :)
I'll gladly let you take care of this, and mark this report as a duplicate of yours.
wrt. the examples, I think you may want to split them out in xbae-examples if
that's even possible. (I don't know rpm all that well).

Currently I package them in xbae-devel. I don't think they deserve
a separate subpackage.
I cannot find anything packaged in
in your specfile. Is it an error? I ask because this is something
I could take from your spec, but I cannot find it.
That's wierd, my devel rpm includes
/usr/share/aclocal/ac_find_xbae.m4 5618 1149167337
34839c3fd5b8d6d7d6dc693d4c2ddce9 0100644 root root 0 0 0 X
which turns out to be a copy of the ac_find_xbae.m4 that's at the top of the
source tree. Part of the patch I include in the rpm is supposed to make that one
Seems to me that it is not part of your patch but it is in
configure... Your patch avoids documentation installation.
I solved that issue differently.
However aclocal isn't found by configure on my box, I have
to investigate that.
These two bits in my patch:
aclocal_DATA = ac_find_xbae.m4
-@Aclocal_TRUE@aclocal_DATA = ac_find_xbae.m4
+aclocal_DATA = ac_find_xbae.m4
I do install the man pages as documentation with -devlel. The html stuff that
comes with xbae is way out of date, so I decided to leave it out.
Strangely this doesnt seems to be that patch which is in your
.src.rpm... I can do the same however.
