Compiling in Arch

How do you compile programs in Arch?

I really don't like to run

./configure
make
make install

I want to be able to review what i have installed, and uninstall it again without problems. In Slackware i use a tool called checkinstall. When i compile a program i do:

./configure
make
checkinstall

Checkinstall will then make a Slackware-package of the program, and install it. I can easily remove the package again.

Is there similar software i could use for Arch? Or would checkinstall work in Arch too?

Re: Compiling in Arch

You make a pkgbuild, and make your own package.
Check the wiki and the forum for ABS, and how to make your own packages.

easy install via pacman:

pacman -A /location/of/package.pkg.tar.gz

pacman -Rn package to remove it and the config files

As far as I know, you can still use checkinstall, just download and compile it wink
