/usr/share/doc/libpfm-devel-3.2/multiplex2: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel
80386, version 1 (SYSV), for GNU/Linux 2.6.9, statically linked, for GNU/Linux
2.6.9, not stripped

Comment 1 William Cohen 2006-07-08 15:15:09 EDT
Looked up information about FHS at http://www.pathname.com/fhs/
and found that the stuff in /usr/share should be machine independent.

Modified the libpfm.spec file to not install the example files in /usr/share.
libpfm-devel-3.2-0.060621.8 has the fix.
