Default Re: Gentoo ebuild (packaging)

As for installing in a distribution, I had to overcome the fact that your utility only loads the test data from the current directory by installing the executable and the data files into /usr/share/qvdpautest, renaming the executable into qvdpautest-exec and explicitly calling that renamed executable by the batch the Gentoo ebuild generates and actually installs it as /usr/bin/qvdpautest
This tool isn't meant to be installed system wide nor to be packaged. Some samples may be copyrighted (even if i doubt anyone would complain). Target users are expected to have the skills to compile it. But feel free to do what you want with it.
