Description Eugene Kanter 2006-04-04 03:22:50 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #187594 +++

Description of problem:

BuildRoot value is hardcoded in spec to /var/tmp/gcc-root. It should be
something like %{_tmppath}/%{name}-%{version}-root.

It really doesn't matter, it is overridden almost always anyway.
There are many packages that have similar buildroot values.
All that matters is whether the BuildRoot tag is present or not.

There probably is some other issue in gcc spec file. GCC was the only package
out of all RHELv4 updates which completely ignored

%_tmppath %(eval 'echo $HOME/tmp')

in ~/.rpmmacros and continued to place its files in /var/tmp/gcc-root

Original submitter is not able to reopen the but so I am creating another one.

I've changed this even in RHEL4's gcc34.spec, though I'd say changing it in
gcc41.spec for FC5/RHEL5+ was more than enough back in December.
