Description Mark Heffernan 2006-04-13 20:07:36 EDT
Description of problem:
The groff-perl package built from the RPM groff-1.18.1-27.src.rpm depends on
/usr/local/bin/perl which doesn't appear to be provided by anything.  Probably
should be /usr/bin/perl.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install source rpm groff-1.18.1-27.src.rpm from Red Hat Network
2. build rpms with "build -bb groff-1.18.spec".  Builds four groff-* packages
   including groff-perl
3. Try to install groff-perl.
Actual results:
Fails because of dependency on /usr/local/sbin/perl:

# rpm -iv groff-perl-1.18.1-27.i386.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
        /usr/local/bin/perl is needed by groff-perl-1.18.1-27

Expected results:

Additional info:
Comment 1 Mark Heffernan 2006-04-13 20:31:45 EDT
.. not a bug.  During rpm build, /usr/local/bin/perl was picked up as the perl
location.  /usr/local/bin/perl was then required to install rpm.  Made sure
/usr/local/bin was not in path when building rpm, and rpm works fine.
