I have downloaded "checkinstall" that allows you to create an rpm 
installer out of a tar-gz file, you just type "checkinstall" after 
"./configure" and "make" and it builds and install an rpm. So far so 
good, it did installed the rpm but I was not able  to  "see" it to save 
it someplace else. Has anyone used this or  done in a different way, I 
mean" to build an rpm from a tar.gz?
