Description of problem:
In the course of rebuilding the nautilus-2.6.0-4 package ("rpmbuild
--rebuild nautilus-2.6.0-4.src.rpm") the timestamp on the /usr/lib
directory is updated to the time that the binary packages were built.
No updated files are seen in the directory, but the change of
timestamp suggests that the RPM build process is writing to a
directory that should not be touched.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Note time stamp ("ls -lt /usr") on /usr/lib directory.
2. Rebuild binary packages: rpmbuild --rebuild nautilus-2.6.0-4.src.rpm
3. Note that timestamp on /usr/lib directory has changed.
Actual Results: Modified timestamp on /usr/lib directory.
Expected Results: Packaging of binary packages should be restricted
to /usr/src/redhat and to /var/tmp directories.
Writing to /usr/lib in the course of building binary packages risks
modifying the existing files in that directory. Don't do that!
