Description Jeremy Katz 2000-03-09 15:35:03 EST
The elm specfile in piglet (also the same in rawhide) uses a Buildroot hard
coded to /var/tmp/%{name}-root.  It makes more sense to use
%{_tmppath}/%{name}-root just so you can have the build root where you
want/need it due to space considerations.
Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2000-03-09 15:51:59 EST
It ain't just elm that codes a build root that way.

Anyways, the Right Thing To Do is to put
	%_buildroot	%{_tmppath}/%{name}-root
as part of the build system configuration. That will take precedence
over everything but the command line, and just *delete* BuildRoot:
from spec files entirely.

Marking as WONTFIX in the sense CANTFIX because of legacy packaging.
