Description Robert Peterson 2006-08-04 16:46:16 UTC
Description of problem:
The Cluster Suite Makefiles are using a separate bin
directory to house temporary copies of compiled tools
before they get installed in their proper destinations.
Each Makefile has a "make copytobin" that is unnecessary
and having the intermediate step can lead to problems.
Makefiles should just have "make install" like normal.

Comment 1 Robert Peterson 2006-08-11 16:54:11 UTC
This change is for Makefile reform allowing a simple
"make" command to recompile the entire cluster suite:

1. All Makefiles have been changed to get rid of references
   to "copytobin" and the bin directory.  This will
   eliminate discrepancies between "bin" versions and
   installed versions of the programs.
2. The cman and group configure files have been modified
   to allow linking properly to /usr/lib64 on x86_64
   systems without specifying libdir.
3. Fixed several problems relating to "make install"
   not recompiling modified code.
4. Fixed some dependency problems with gfs and gfs2 tools
   that linked against libgfs and libgfs2 respectively.
5. All Makefiles have been updated to use "make -C <dir>"
   rather than "cd <dir> ; make" so that compile errors
   won't charge ahead without stopping you.
6. Deleted references to obsolete iddev library.
7. Got rid of more "linux" symlinks for includes.
8. Misc minor Makefile cleanup.

Moving all RHCS ver 5 bugs to RHEL 5 so we can remove RHCS v5 which never existed.

Moving all closed bugs to gfs-kmod to match the rpm name.  GFS-kernel will be
