IPSquad Packages From Scratch

IPFS (IPSquad Package From Source) is a system which allows you to trace an program's installation from sources and register it in your favorite packaging system (only the Slackware package system and RPM are currently supported). IPFS watches a command (generally make install), collects the list of added files, and then registers them in the chosen packaging system as if the install was made from a normal package. Unlike other similar products, IPFS is able to track both shared and statically linked programs.
