Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 104549
Missing BuildRequires elfutils-devel
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:57:37 EDT
Description of problem:
Severn with many rawhide updates.
Building rpm-4.2.1-0.30 on my Athlon 800 fails. See attached build logs.
$ rpmbuild -ba rpm.spec 2>&1 | tee rpm.build.log
# rpmbuild --rebuild rpm-4.2.1-0.30.src.rpm 2>&1 | tee rpm.rebuild.log
both fail in the same way.

Build log for rpm
The problem was just a missing elfutils-devel rpm. Built fine after
elfutils-devel was added.
You might want to add a BuildRequires elfutils-devel.
The buildrequires is needed, but cannot be added until
a decision is made with respect to releasing elfutils
packages for Red Hat 8.0 and 7.3. Otherwise rpm cannot
be released for those versions of RHL.
NEEDIFO pending dependency. WONTFIX if elfutils is not
released for 8.0 and 7.3.
Since RHL 8.0 and RHL 7.3 are EOL maybe now is the time to add this
BuildRequires (for the upcoming FC2).
The build dependency has been there quite a while.
