Description Jindrich Novy 2006-08-28 23:44:17 EDT
Description of problem:
Brew built debuginfo packages contain symlinks pointing directly to brew buildtree.

Consider the latest netpbm debuginfo package, which contains:
bmp.h -> /builddir/build/BUILD/netpbm-10.34/converter/bmp.h

The dangling symlinks are pointing to C header files whose are included from
local sources by #include "*.h" but they aren't present in the directory where
are the sources, but in a different directory.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. build netpbm with brew
Actual results:
Dangling symlinks present in the debuginfo package

Expected results:
No dangling symlinks

I see that beehive suffers from a similar problem (bug 204437). I suspect that
this is an issue with the packages in the buildroots rather than brew itself (or
beehive for that matter).
Comment 2 Radek Bíba 2006-09-06 08:12:55 EDT
Custom-built debuginfo packages contain symlinks to the local buildroot, too
(e.g. /usr/src/redhat/BUILD/...). Is it a bug in rpmbuild or one of its
components, then?
Comment 3 Radek Bíba 2006-09-06 14:32:01 EDT
More than likely. Please see Joe Orton's proposed patch in attachment 135661 [details].

I've gathered all the affected packages in current rawhide. Let's use this report
as a tracker bug and also to see the importance and impact of this issue.

Confirmed fixed.
