If your package contains relocatable files, you can use the -b base-src-dir option to the pkgmk command to specify a path name to be added to the beginning of the relocatable path names while the package is being created. This is useful if you haven't used the path1=path2 format for relocatable files or specified a search path with the !search command in the prototype file.
For example, to build a package using the sample prototype file created by the pkgproto command (see Creating a prototype File With the pkgproto Command), without modifying the path fields, and just adding an entry for the pkginfo file, the pkgmk command is:
$ cd /home/jane/InfoFiles $ pkgmk -o -b /home/jane ## Building pkgmap from package prototype file. ## Processing pkginfo file. WARNING: parameter set to "system960716102636" WARNING: parameter set to "none" ## Attempting to volumize 13 entries in pkgmap. part 1 -- 3170 blocks, 17 entries ## Packaging one part. /var/spool/pkg/SUNWcadap/pkgmap /var/spool/pkg/SUNWcadap/pkginfo /var/spool/pkg/SUNWcadap/reloc/SUNWcadap/demo/file1 /var/spool/pkg/SUNWcadap/reloc/SUNWcadap/lib/file2 /var/spool/pkg/SUNWcadap/reloc/SUNWcadap/man/man1/file3.1 /var/spool/pkg/SUNWcadap/reloc/SUNWcadap/man/man1/file4.1 /var/spool/pkg/SUNWcadap/reloc/SUNWcadap/man/windex /var/spool/pkg/SUNWcadap/reloc/SUNWcadap/srcfiles/file5 /var/spool/pkg/SUNWcadap/reloc/SUNWcadap/srcfiles/file6 ## Validating control scripts. ## Packaging complete.
In this example, the package is built in the default directory, /var/spool/pkg, by specifying the -o option (to overwrite the package we created in Example—Building a Package).
