Probably not. Another good example may be jade, where I build
packages with different versions out of one source tree, since jade
1.1 ships with sp 1.3 source as well (and that's how I make the sp
package). So I conjoin the sp major version with the jade source
version and debian version:
Brian, here's a snippet from jade/debian/rules:
SRC_VERSION := $(shell head -1 debian/changelog | cut '-d ' -f 2 | sed 's/[()]//g')
SP_VERSION := $(shell cat VERSION)
binary-arch: checkroot build
# put it all together
dpkg-shlibdeps -pshlibs-sp -Ldebian/shlibs.sp_override $(bindir-sp)/*
dpkg-shlibdeps -pshlibs-jade $(bindir-jade)/*
# make control file, derive sp and sp-dev versions
dpkg-gencontrol -isp -p$(pkg-sp) -P$(prefix-sp) -v$(SP_VERSION)-$(SRC_VERSION)
dpkg-gencontrol -isp -p$(pkg-sp-dev) -P$(prefix-sp-dev) -v$(SP_VERSION)-$(SRC_VERSION)
dpkg-gencontrol -isp -p$(pkg-jade) -P$(prefix-jade)
chown -R root.root $(prefix-sp) $(prefix-sp-dev) $(prefix-jade)
chmod -R go=rX $(prefix-sp) $(prefix-sp-dev) $(prefix-jade)
dpkg --build $(prefix-sp) ..
dpkg --build $(prefix-sp-dev) ..
dpkg --build $(prefix-jade) ..
Aren't I the clever one? ;)
