i've had my issues with this patch when i tried it ... never got checkinstall running as desired. well, the patch makes the program run at least, but it only creates rpms sometimes. renaming /usr/local/sbin/makepak did the trick sometimes, other times not, i don't know what's wrong here.
i really like checkinstall, but i decided to stay away from checkinstall, at least until new version comes out, since it's success is unpredictable.
