-The RTEMS Source Builder is a stand alone tool based on another tool called the
-'SpecBuilder'. The SpecBuilder was written for the RTEMS project to give me a
-way to build tools on hosts that did not support RPMs. At the time the RTEMS
-tools maintainer only used spec files to create various packages. This meant I
-had either spec files, RPM files or SRPM files. The RPM and SPRM files where
-useless because you needed an 'rpm' type tool to extract and manage them. There
-are versions of 'rpm' for a number of non-RPM hosts however these proved to be
-in various broken states and randomly maintained. The solution I settled on was
-to use spec files so I wrote a Python based tool that parsed the spec file
-format and allowed me to create a shell script I could run to build the
-package. This approach proved successful and I was able to track the RPM
-version of the RTEMS tools on a non-RPM host over a number of years. however
-the SpecBuilder tool did not help me build tools or other packages not related
-to the RTEMS project where there was no spec file I could use so I needed
-another tool. Rather than start again I decided to take the parsing code for
-the spec file format and build a new tool called the RTEMS Source Builder.
