 I have try checkinstall (1.3.2 and 1.4beta), but it does not work. It
cannot monitor action that "make install" do.
I have try with installwatch only and "installwatch -o dummy.log make
install" write nothing in dummy.log, but "installwatch -o dummy.log mkdir
foo" write the mkdir action in the dummy.log file.
I dont understand why but I am allways trying to find (or to do) an
automatic log of the "make install" command to create some files/packages
database with cross reference to resolve dependencies and to uninstall
properly an application.
