That looks like a broken build environment - it's getting libdir=/usr/lib64 for
a ppc32 build?

+ ./configure --build=powerpc-redhat-linux-gnu --host=powerpc-redhat-linux-gnu
--target=ppc-redhat-linux-gnu ... --libdir=/usr/lib64 ...

Comment 5 Joe Orton 2005-08-19 02:20:21 EDT
Toggled to private, yeah, I guess.

Still: never should you have libdir=/usr/lib64 for a 32-bit ppc build.  That
just doesn't make sense.
Comment 6 Joe Orton 2005-10-05 09:15:16 EDT
This is either an rpm configuration issue or something; it needs more
investigation to assign properly, either way.

Can't reproduce on a RHEL4/ppc64 P5 box here:

jorton@jupiter:~$ ppc rpmbuild --target ppc --eval %{_libdir}
rpmbuild: no spec files given for build
