Description Nalin Dahyabhai 2002-07-23 18:33:38 EDT
Using desktop-file-install in %install would be simpler if a --root option,
which prepended a specified path to the hard-wired default installation
directory (used when --dir is not specified), could be used.  It'd reduce
confusion, at least for me.

Does --root mean DESTDIR?

Nalin, ping?
