Description of problem:
When trying to recompile imap server rpm from redhat-provided src.rpm, the rpmbuild fails in the prep section because of RCS lock files included in source.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. download and install imap-2002d-11.src.rpm (up2date --get-source imap ; rpm -ivh /var/spool/up2date/imap-2002d-11.src.rpm)
2. cd to /usr/src/redhat
3. try to rebuild imap rpm (rpmbuild -ba SPECS/imap.spec)
Actual Results: %prep section failed when patching sources :
+ patch -p0 -b --suffix .mbox-disable-patch -s
patch: **** File ./Makefile seems to be locked by somebody else under RCS
error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.47208 (%prep)
RPM build errors:
Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.47208 (%prep)
Expected Results: imap rpm built, no error
this error comes from the files
that are present in the imap-2002.tar.Z source file
