Nothing to read, actually... it just creates an rpm out of the output of
whatever command you give it. The typical use is with no parameters, in
which case it runs "make install", the standard installation command for
most projects. The rpm is given the name of the directory in which the
compilation is made. Everything can be overridden with options. It has a
simple text menu.

It doesn't create optimum rpms, but they are rpms, keeps the database
happy, and makes easy to uninstall your own compiled packages.
