Patch rtems-rc-4.5.0-21.diff from Ralf Corsepius <corsepiu@…>
which splits the current monolithic specs files into a sequence of
subparts. These can be concatenated togather to make a the whole .spec
file. This cleans up the maintenance problem of having "all languages"
and a "C/C++ only" gccnewlib spec files. Plus it should make it easier
to produce variants like the gdb-m68k-bdm which require special hackery. :)
Ralf's comments:

It addresses the way * get composed inside of the source


  • Each is broken into several files (*.add), one *.add file per sub-package.
  • Each composes spec.ins from the *.add files
  • Removal of redundant automake support files.
  • Default value for BuildRoot? changed to /tmp/<spec-file-name>
  • %clean stage added to *specs

Advantages (IMHO).

  • The *.add files are easier to adminstrate and more flexible in comparison to the former *.specs.ins.
  • now is composed from the same sources as (less errors)
  • If using the default BuildRoot? --clean now deletes all files that were generated while building.


  • has not yet been adapted to the scheme used for the other *spec.ins
  • Except for cosmetical changes the internals of the *.spec files should not have changed.
