If you use a find command to track new files created by install , how do
you deal with the case of any new file created by process other than the
make install while make install is running?
You can change 1 sprintf line in installwatch to make your output compatible
with standard unix commands.
Installwatch programs take no detectable time to run while a find command can
take a fairly large amount of time on a system with lots of extra packages
Installwatch type programs can also be unreliable because they can not
track files created by programs that bypass dynamic glibc open/creat.
ie. An assembler version of install which call int 80 directly.
Although I am using an Installwatch clone , I am still looking for the
perfect solution (other than writing my own make install for each package
as I assume the distros like redhat,debian must do).
