Automatic install after building a package is unlikely,  but maybe one
day there will be an option to browse the /tmp directory and install
pkgs it finds in there.  Not sure, though.

alias lsg='ls | grep'

al at AB60R:~$ lsg cups

(given if cups had just been built and now is to be installed) (in konsole I
can then copy and paste that pkg name)

(in bash the up arrow key brings back up the most recent command)

root at AB60R:~# sbopkg some option

quickly backspace on that, reduces it to sbopkg

root at AB60R:~# sbopkginst cups-1.2.11-i486-1.tgz

(then, add, type in only the letters inst then paste the cups pkg after --
now, strike enter key and it installs)

not forget to create an alias in the .bashrc file, thus:

alias sbopkginst='installpkg'

(now, both (either of the two) works to get a pkg installed, not just the

(also an "lsg" alias if want to shortcut the ls and the grepping).
