Description of problem:
At line 22 of the specfile:
Otherwise there won't be a clue that pam-devel is needed for
compiling. rpm will pick up the Requires: pam as it builds the package
even without it being explicitly said.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -e --nodeps pam-devel
2. rpmbuild -bb vixie-cron.spec
Actual Results: compile failed
Expected Results: message saying where the rpm was saved.
Actually, it was 'Requires: pam-devel'
until I got a letter complaining that
devel packages should not be required
on production systems.
Obviously, it should have been:
' Requires: pam
and shall be so henceforth
