What does an RPM file need to do to support an alternative installroot? Nothing. The RPM system itself does all the work.

I spent a couple minutes doing research today, and I think I confused RPM's "root" support with its "relocatable" support. Easy enough to do, since I've never used either. =)

What you cant do with yum and apt is to add a --prefix=/opt/gaim/2.4.0 when installing an
application. That's the only good thing about Gentoo.
