Removing checkinstall may have made sense given the reasons.... but it

CLEAR non-developer documentation explaining the exact steps with no
fluff or long winded explanations.. or a full app/script replacement.

I agree. I have often used it to "roll my own" RPMs from source.
There should be a replacement.
