Yesterday I spent a big chunk of time shirking some paying work and instead building a spec file (and related SRPM/RPM) of the currently released bitcoin beta, version 0.3.13.
This SRPM includes full copies of the necessary versions of sources of wxWidgets, OpenSSL (the distro-provided OpenSSL is missing some patented ECC functionality), Berkeley DB, and boost. It builds a statically linked bitcoind binary.
Presently, it only builds the command line "bitcoind" binary. There is no documentation, man pages, or config files installed, just the single binary file. While the heavy lifting of the coin minting is optimized properly (and runs quite fast in my testing), the rest of the app is built with -O0 -ggdb. This should not substantially affect day-to-day use or minting. (It kept segfaulting on me when compiled without -ggdb or with -O2, but this works fine.)http://dl.dropbox.com/u/12508881/bitcoin-0.3.13-0.x86_64.rpmhttp://dl.dropbox.com/u/12508881/bitcoin-0.3.13-0.src.rpmAny donations to 16o8XAWdBXv7sPeiCuKFypETAtJcb1D7gf for my half workday spent doing this would be quite appreciated.
