From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i586; en-US; rv:1.4.2)

Description of problem:
perl is missing a build dependency on the man package. If perl is
built without it being installed, it will refuse to build man pages
for perl modules that use pod2man. Many perl packages dynamically
create their file list, so it will go unnoticed when used to build
many other packages. It should have:

BuildRequires: man

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -e man
2. rpmbuild -bb perl.spec
3. rpmbuild -bb perl-Filter
4. rpm -qpl perl-Filter-1.30-6.i386.rpm | grep man

Actual Results:  Nothing printed in step 4 above

Expected Results:  All the man pages for perl-Filter

Comment 1 Chip Turner 2004-09-29 13:34:00 EDT
added buildrequire of 'man' to the package; should be part of the next
