- fix glob on dangling symlinks

This fix kills the notion of having a glob in a spec file for a
directory with files. In case of compiling redhat-config-netboot, but
there are many others, a link is placed in /usr/bin pointing to a file
which is not included in this package (consolehelper). In the past
this was valid, not anymore since the glob no longer sees the
dangeling link.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install before mentioned glibc
2. rpmbuild --rebuild -b redhat-config-netboot

Actual Results:  rpm packaging error.

Expected Results:  rpm package with the dangling link into place

Additional info:

Running the exact same steps on a system which is totally upgraded
EXCEPT glibc results in the expected package. Problem lays in
interaction rpm vs glibc

Comment 1 Ulrich Drepper 2004-12-22 21:49:12 UTC
The change is correct and necessary.  If .spec files have problems they need to
be fixed.
