    In order to install an rpm, you must supply arguments to rpm. What exactly do you mean? rpm -Uvh package.rpm, that installs an rpm and you could consider -Uvh to be the arguments.

    Sorry

    I mean like --withoption, --withoutopotion, --instead of this do this, --enable that...

    does this make sence?

    this would be done in a ./config --arguments manner
