Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 144642
rpmbuild still parses %defines which are commented with # in specfile
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:58 EST
Description of problem:
See attached foo.spec for example. Given my understanding of rpm per Maximum
RPM, the echo output should be the string "good" but instead I get "bad".
Haven't explored to see if this affects more than the %define directive, but I'd
guess it does.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
rpm-build-4.3.3-8 in fedora-rawhide, but also tested and same behavior from:
rpm-build-4.0.4-7x.18 in rh7.3
rpm-build-4.3.2-21 in fc3
Steps to Reproduce:
1. download attached foo.spec
2. rpmbuild -bp foo.spec
Executing(%prep): /bin/sh -e /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.31889
+ umask 022
+ cd /usr/src/redhat/BUILD
+ export LANG
+ unset DISPLAY
+ echo bad
+ exit 0
as above except "echo good"

minimal specfile to demonstrate bug
Yep. macor expansion is entirely context free, macros are expanded
wherever they are found, in comments, within quoted strings,
on the false branch of if statements, everywhere.
# %%define ...
to disable the expansion.
