Jerry - thanks again for sponsoring me.
I think I have fixed all of the minor issues you have raised.
As you suggested, I just eliminated the patch to the Makefile and made the
corresponding adjustments to the make command in the %build section.
The "go" script in the examples sub-directory is rather trivial as you can see
by inspection, so it really doesn't warrant an examples sub-package. I elected
to just remove the executable permission bits. It could also be entirely
eliminated from the package if that is in some way preferable.
I eliminated the checks in %install and %clean for RPM_BUILD_ROOT being equal
to "/" as you suggested. Just the thought of that happening is enough to make
my hair stand on end, so I have included it in all my personal packages for
ages now. (I guess I am dating myself by including that :^)
Your patch for the printf statements is a much better solution than mine, and
as you said, it also works independent of the host architecture.
The issues relating to the licensing are a valid concern of course, but could
be a show stopper in this case because there is no upstream to contact
regarding this issue (or the filing of bug reports). The author, William
McCune, passed away rather suddenly back in May 2011. A shocker to the ATP
community for sure as he was only 58!
I will contact fedora-legal-list(a)redhat.com as you suggested. It's worth a try.
I doubt that it would be of any help in making a legal clarification, but Bill
was also the author of Prover9/Mace which is already packaged in Fedora as
prover9. That package is licensed under GPLv2 and GPLv2+, but the prover9
source distribution includes a file named COPYING that clearly states that,
which is not the case for EQP.
