Description Andreas Thienemann 2004-07-12 08:41:41 EDT
Description of problem:
When rebuilding glibc, the following error appears when no perl is

+ perl -pi -e 's/0 \|\|/1 ||/' ../elf/tst-tls10.h
/var/tmp/rpm-tmp.76641: line 31: perl: command not found
error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.76641 (%build)

perl is called twice in the specfile to search and replace certain

1st occurence:
perl -pi -e 's/0 \|\|/1 ||/' ../elf/tst-tls10.h ../linuxthreads/tst-tls1.h

2nd occurence:
perl -pi -e 's/alarm \(TIMEOUT\)/alarm (TIMEOUT * 15 * '$numprocs' <
600 ? TIMEOUT * 15 * '$numprocs' : 600)/' \

Both should be changed to sed calls such as "sed -ie 's/0 \|\|/1 ||/'
 ../elf/tst-tls10.h ../linuxthreads/tst-tls1.h" as needing perl for
rebuilding glibc is a bit much.

Otherwise, at least BuildRequires: perl should be added to facilate
automated rebuilding.

We have adjusted the glibc.spec file currently in use.  glibc-2.3.3-66
or higher once available will have the changes.
