Description Eugene Kanter 2006-04-03 23:22:50 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #187594 +++

Description of problem:

BuildRoot value is hardcoded in spec to /var/tmp/gcc-root. It should be
something like %{_tmppath}/%{name}-%{version}-root.

-- Additional comment from jakub@redhat.com on 2006-04-03 07:18 EST --
It really doesn't matter, it is overridden almost always anyway.
There are many packages that have similar buildroot values.
All that matters is whether the BuildRoot tag is present or not.

-- Additional comment from ekanter@rcn.com on 2006-04-03 08:52 EST --
There probably is some other issue in gcc spec file. GCC was the only package
out of all RHELv4 updates which completely ignored

%_tmppath %(eval 'echo $HOME/tmp')

in ~/.rpmmacros and continued to place its files in /var/tmp/gcc-root

Original submitter is not able to reopen the but so I am creating another one.
Comment 1 Jakub Jelinek 2006-04-04 05:41:38 EDT
I've changed this even in RHEL4's gcc34.spec, though I'd say changing it in
gcc41.spec for FC5/RHEL5+ was more than enough back in December.
