Description Bill Nottingham 1999-06-24 19:39:52 UTC
If the line:

%undefine   _fixgroup

is in a spec file, it undefines other macros
(at least %_gzipbin), even if the %undefine
line is commented out. The only way to avoid
this is to remove the line from the spec file.

Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 1999-06-25 09:33:59 UTC
BTW: rpm 3.0 will expand macros even in comment lines.

The symbol hash table was truncated by the deletion of
%_fixgroup. Fixed in rpm-3.0.2-0.8.
