Description Mike A. Harris 2004-03-11 17:22:01 EST
If the file present in the RPM_BUILD_ROOT is a symbolic link, and
it is not listed in one of the %files lists, it will not get
included in the rpm, and rpm will not complain.  It does this in
dist-fc2 for me.

I discovered this after adding the new lib*.so.* files to the
spec file, but forgetting to add the lib*.so symlinks to the file
lists, and later noticing by luck that they were not present in
the generated -devel package.  Since the code I have in the spec
file to generate the .so symlinks works on all .so.* libraries:

    pushd $RPM_BUILD_ROOT%{_x11libdir}
    for lib in *.so.*; do ln -sf $lib ${lib%.so*}.so ; done

... I was surprised to not get an rpm failure error, since I know
rpm is checking because it complained about other missing files.

Let me know if I should bugzilla this, or if it is a quickie fix
not needing that.
