Lack of version numbers means that installation of a later
source tree will blow away the old one.
Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 1999-09-03 16:51:59 EDT
This is a packager/packaging problem, not an rpm problem. Basically,
you need to "look before you leap" if you're using rpm to build

Alternatively, you might try these macros that will install all
components from a src.rpm in the same /J/name-version-release
directory (built binaries and src.rpm end up there too):

%_topdir        /J
%_ntopdir       %{_topdir}/%{name}-%{version}-%{release}
%_builddir      %{_ntopdir}
%_rpmdir        %{_ntopdir}
%_sourcedir     %{_ntopdir}
%_specdir       %{_ntopdir}
%_srpmdir       %{_ntopdir}
%_rpmfilename   %%{NAME}-%%{VERSION}-%%{RELEASE}.%%{ARCH}.rpm
