Description Cole Robinson 2015-08-09 15:07:19 EDT
Trying to build qemu on rawhide suddenly hits this error:

LC_ALL=C makeinfo --no-headers --no-split --number-sections --html qemu-tech.texi -o qemu-tech.html
Can't locate Storable.pm in @INC (you may need to install the Storable module) (@INC contains: /usr/local/lib64/perl5 /usr/local/share/perl5 /usr/lib64/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/lib64/perl5 /usr/share/perl5 . /usr/share/texinfo) at /usr/share/texinfo/Texinfo/Parser.pm line 48.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/share/texinfo/Texinfo/Parser.pm line 48.
Compilation failed in require at /usr/bin/makeinfo line 107.

Makefile:496: recipe for target 'qemu-tech.html' failed

Previously it looks like 'perl' would pull in perl-Storable, but not anymore. Adding 'BuildRequires: perl-Storable' to qemu fixed the build, but that doesn't seem right. Though maybe the dep should be in texinfo or something...

Correct. This is as of perl-5.22.0-350.fc24.

You are correct (rebuilding the current texinfo srpm fails with the same error message).

texinfo is incorrectly filtering out the perl(Storable) requires.  My proposed fix:
