Patch to fix SPEC file

Description of problem:
The SPEC file deletes INSTALL from /usr/share/util-macros/ which is therefore missing from the RPM file. However, this file is needed by the macros of this package, as you can see in /usr/share/aclocal/xorg-macros.m4 line 1773 and following:

# Defines the variable INSTALL_CMD as the command to copy
# INSTALL from $prefix/share/util-macros.

This missing file breaks the macro XORG_INSTALL which is used by many xorg modules.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
any since, 1.10.0-2 which introduced the removal

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. git clone git://anongit.freedesktop.org/xorg/app/xauth
2. cd xauth
3. ./autogen
4. make
5. make distcheck > /dev/null

Actual results:
cp: cannot stat ‘/usr/share/util-macros/INSTALL’: No such file or directory
util-macros "pkgdatadir" from xorg-macros.pc not found: installing possibly empty INSTALL.

Expected results:
[no output]

Additional info:
Please find attached a patch for the spec file, which fixes the problem.

Comment 1 Hans de Goede 2014-07-03 20:32:10 UTC
About the patch you've attached here, this bit is wrong:

 %doc COPYING ChangeLog

You don't own %{_datadir}/util-macros here, so after a "rpm -e ..." there will be an orphan /usr/share/util-macros be left behind.

Instead you should use:


Which will put the dir (including dir ownership) and all the files beneath it in the rpm.

If you can respin the patch (please also update the changelog date, I'll apply it while we see if we can get you commit rights.
