I have been installing software on Linux for quite a while using
binary tar format. I now am switching over to trying to use RPMs as
much as possible and this is working quite well. I'm now following the
howtos for installing postfix-cyrus-mysql-webcyradm.
My question is this: for RPMs that are pre-installed as part of a
distro, what is the best and easiest ways to tell what options were
used to build these pre-installed RPMs? Can I query for this
information? For example RH9 comes with cyrus-sasl. How do I know
what configure options were selected when this RPM was built? If I now
want to build cyrus-imapd from a src rpm how do I know that what I
select for build options will not conflict with the cyrus-sasl options
say for example the db options?
