You're amazing guys !
Well, I feel I have works-fun next week.
I'll avoid /opt of course, first step will be to install rpm under
/usr/bin for a test drive and test some of my own rpms.
If it works great, next step may be a relocation under /opt/rpm4osx or
something like this, ie using a specific bin/lib paths for packages
(like MacPorts/Brew does).
I now some guys who'll be happy to get a rpm based way to get packages
installed via yum for example.
Stay tuned, I'll probably ask you more questions in a very near futur.
Long live RPM ! :-)
