I'm not sure if this bug has something to do with binutils. If not, sorry
for that.

Since one of the security updates of the last two weeks or so (glibc?) I am
unable to rebuild src.rpm's, which were working perfectly until a few weeks
ago. I found that "strip" had something to do with this, which doesn't mean
that the cause is "strip" of course. I also tried to rebuild binutils but
with the same result. I posted a tee output of ssh.src.rpm on my website.

This is what happens when I rebuild ssh-1.2.27-7i.src.rpm:

This is what happens when I rebuild binutils-

+ strip /var/tmp/binutils-root/usr/bin/ar /var/tmp/binutils-root/usr/bin/as
/var/tmp/binutils-root/usr/bin/ld /var/tmp/binutils-root/usr/bin/nm
/var/tmp/binutils-root/usr/bin/ranlib /var/tmp/binutils-root/usr/bin/strip
strip: /var/tmp/binutils-root/usr/bin/strip: simple_copy: Text file busy
+ gzip -q9f /var/tmp/binutils-root/usr/info/*.info*
/var/tmp/binutils-root/usr/info/*.info*: No such file or directory
Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.77863 (%install)

I found out that rpm-3.0.5 is guilty.
