Description Aleš Mareček 2014-07-22 14:28:31 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1048514 +++

Description of problem:

I tried to build an RPM with _hardened_build macro. But the binary was not fortified what so ever after an build. imho this is an security issue because you will not know if you not check it with the hardening-check script for example!

Steps to Reproduce:
1. build rpm with hardened_build macro

Actual results:
not hardened

Expected results:
[root@d-hpwtest SPECS]# hardening-check /usr/sbin/nginx
 Position Independent Executable: yes
 Stack protected: yes
 Fortify Source functions: yes (some protected functions found)
 Read-only relocations: yes
 Immediate binding: yes

Additional info:
This one was a real hair-puller and after a couple of hours I found out that the
problem was fixed by installing redhat-rpm-config. 

The root cause is that $RPM_LD_FLAGS is empty without the config rpm.

Please add redhat-rpm-config as dep of rpm-build or something :-)

I added require on "redhat-rpm-config". But we decided that require on "system-rpm-config" is really better solution. Cloning this bug for redhat-rpm-config to add provide "system-rpm-config".

Fixed in rpm-build-4.8.0-44.el6.
