Yes it seems to be a better name, but not all of those tools are gnu,
therefore I chose kdebld name (it's based on CBE - common build
environment, which have Sun's Gnome guys and installed /opt/jdsbuild).
It just a name.

Uff I'm sorry, but I don't understand clearly at this point. Do you
are talking about spec files ???

My plan is:  prepare spec file for all tools/libs in current svn (at
cvsdude). One spec file (stdcxx.spec) per tool/lib (Stdcxx). First i'm
preparing 32bit version and then second 64bit version. Now I have
64bit version for stdcxx and boost. These spec files are located in
SPECS directory.


P.S. Adriaan, please provide me the naming convenction.
