I got popt 1.15 from
Compiled and installed it.
Now I get the following error during compilation

o -lm /usr/lib/libmagic.so -lbeecrypt -lz /usr/lib/libpopt.so -lpthread
-lrt -Wl,-rpath -Wl,/usr/local/lib
../lib/.libs/librpm.so: undefined reference to `poptReadConfigFiles'
../lib/.libs/librpm.so: undefined reference to `poptReadFile'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[3]: *** [rpm2cpio] Error 1

make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/operator/rpm-5.1.9'
make: *** [all] Error 2

Is there a list of components/versions and where to get them, I need so
that I can install them and make sure compile install goes fine? I
notice that all the components like popt, xar all have copies in the
RPM5 CVS. Is this where we should pulling stuff from?

Also I am trying to compile RPM5 with XAR support. Additionally I want
the RPM tooling to be compiled and installed  at
/my/own-nfs/tooling/dir. I want this central install to be usable by all
the machines on the network, to mostly build RPMS in private workspace
and install those RPMs into private workspace. Installation of RPMs
should not happen to root (/). Is this doable with RPM5?

You need popt-1.15 (or you need to patch out POPT_ARG_ARGV,
which should be in slightly older versions of RPM, POPT_ARG_ARGV was  
to popt like a year ago or so).

I'll attach a copy of a rpmdigest.c that has the necessary
retrofit, rpmdigest.c is rather small.

Look for the

	#if !defined(POPT_ARG_ARGV)


Installing popt-1.15 is the preferred solution.

You can also easily live without building rpmdigest.c, nothing
in RPM itself needs rpmdigest, which is mostly included in RPM
so that the same code paths used by RPM internally can also be
exercised externally in a standalone executable.
