Emacs does not build on ix86 systems (segfaults in %install)
Last modified: 2015-01-07 19:14:25 EST
Description of problem:
Revival of #187884: emacs does not build on ix86 systems due to segfaults. It
works ok in %build, but it crashes in %install.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
The %__make's in the %install section (2x) should be $__MAKE (as in %build) and
$__MAKE should be defined in %install as in %build.

Bug #187884 doesn't have anything to do with emacs or building!?

I am not able to reproduce the problem. I just ran it through our build system,
and did an "rpmbuild --rebuild emacs-21.3-4.10.src.rpm" on a RHEL-3 U5 system
and it worked with no problems. What is your build platform?
