Description Alexander Larsson 2006-07-27 14:45:47 EDT
The attached testcase doesn't build, because the "%{python_sitelib}/foo2" line
isn't expanded. However, if you remove the "%python_source /foo1" line, or make
the python_source macro not take any argument, or make python_sitelib not be
conditionally defined it works.

Comment 2 Alexander Larsson 2006-07-27 14:53:28 EDT
The end goal is to use this macro:
%define python_source(source)  %{python_sitelib}/%{name}/%{1}.py \
  %{python_sitelib}/%{name}/%{1}.pyc \
  %ghost %{python_sitelib}/%{name}/%{1}.pyo \

to avoid duplication for python spec files where i can't use *.pyc.
Comment 3 Toshio Kuratomi 2006-07-27 18:45:03 EDT
This is caused by Bug #147238 which jbj closed as WONTFIX earlier this year.

alexl: The workaround there is to use %global instead of %define.  I had success
using this line to set sitelib:
  %{!?python_sitelib: %global python_sitelib %(%{__python} -c "from
distutils.sysconfig import get_python_lib; print get_python_lib(1)")}

nasrat: Hope the information in that bug helps you track it down.

Using %global apears to solve the preoblem.
