+# Pandoc static packages
+
+This builds a statically-linked standalone pandoc and
+pandoc-citeproc binary rpm packages on Enterprise Linux 5
+which should work across current Linux platforms.
+
+Note that since the binaries are completely statically-linked
+(down to libc) they may need to be rebuilt periodically
+for security updates to the linked libraries.
+
+## Download
+
+The binaries can be downloaded from:
+http://petersen.fedorapeople.org/pandoc-static/epel-5/
+or if you prefer you can add the yum repo
+http://petersen.fedorapeople.org/pandoc-static/pandoc-static.repo
+to /etc/yum.repos.d/.
+
+## Build requirements
+
+- ghc-7.4 (pandoc-1.12 needs ghc-7.2 or later to build)
+- haskell-platform
+- cabal-dev
+- hsb2hs (to embed data files)
+- pcre-devel
+- libffi.a
+
+The current packages were built using ghc-7.4.2
+and haskell-platform-2012.4.0.0 with cabal-dev-0.9.1
+packages in the repo:
+http://repos.fedorapeople.org/repos/petersen/ghc-7.4.2/
+and additionally hsb2hs-0.1, and a rebuilt libffi-3.0.5
+(for libffi.a) are in the
+http://petersen.fedorapeople.org/pandoc-static/epel-5/ repo.
+
+The build from a single spec file needs a network
+connection to download the Haskell libraries dependencies
+otherwise they need to be downloaded in advance using cabal.
+
+## Build steps
+
+Here are the general steps to package the packages on RHEL or Fedora.
+
+### RHEL 5
+
+ $ pushd /etc/yum.repos.d
+ $ su
+ # wget http://repos.fedorapeople.org/repos/petersen/ghc-7.4.2/epel-ghc-7.4.2.repo
+ # wget http://petersen.fedorapeople.org/pandoc-static/pandoc-static.repo
+ # popd
+ # yum install haskell-platform cabal-dev hsb2hs pcre-devel libffi-devel rpm-build
+ #
+ $ cabal update # skip if you have run recently
+ $ rpm -iv pandoc-1.12.3.1-3.src.rpm
+ $ rpmbuild -bb ~/rpmbuild/SPECS/pandoc.spec
+
+### Fedora or RHEL >= 6
+
+ $ sudo yum-builddep pandoc.spec
+ $ cabal update # skip if you have run recently
+ $ cabal install hsb2hs
+ $ rpmbuild -bb pandoc.spec
+
+or in dir with pandoc.spec run
+
+ $ sudo yum install cabal-rpm
+ $ cblrpm rpm pandoc
