Starting with version 0.99, it is possible to build binary RPMs directly
from the source tarball, so there's no longer a need to provide a separate
set of source and binary RPMs. You will need RPM 3.0 or higher in order to
build a binary RPM. Execute the following command:
rpm -ta maildrop-2.9.3.tar.bz2
The binary RPM will be built with a customized configuration (userdb,
GDBM, and quota enhancements enabled). Afterwards, simply execute rpm -i
to install it. That's it.
With RPM 4.1 (Red Hat 8.0) use the 'rpmbuild' command instead of rpm:
rpmbuild -ta maildrop-2.9.3.tar.bz2
If you would like to change the RPM build options, move
maildrop-2.9.3.tar.gz to your SOURCES directory, extract the file
maildrop.spec, move it to your SPECS directory, customize it if necessary,
then build from the spec file.
maildrop includes documentation in HTML, as well as traditional man pages.

See INSTALL for installation information. If you are using an RPM-based
Linux distribution, you can install build a binary RPM directly from the
