This is the file where various build option stanzas are kept.
Building from CVS, the workflow goes like
cvs co rpm
./devtool falmouth # <-- the build options I use on Lion server
There is another bootstrapping stanza (i.e. all build prerequisites
are downloaded/built and rpm is linked against those builds)
in a %standalone stanza.
I personally don't use %standalone because I need to see
a maximally configured rpm to prevent bit rot while developing.
But the %standalone stanza is very useful for testing builds across a
variety of platforms without installing anything whatsoever on that machine
(which is what aft was referring to).
All that is in devtool (and devtool.conf) is a series of %foo shell stanzas.
Think "portable shell functions" and you will figure out what is being done
