The most annoying problem with checkflist is that it aborts the build.sh
process when there are extra files in the destdir. Is there any reason
I can understand that it should abort on *missing* files. That catches
things like the postinstall obsolete problem I've highlighted in
But I would prefer that extra files would just quietly warn, and let
the process complete.
This might also fix the complaint that KRE had, for his ingenious method
where he adds a number of operational files to test the new build as a
separate entity before installing.
Is there already a PR on this?
