Works for me in the latest releases. Closing this bug.
Comment 3 Mark Chappell 2009-08-06 13:06:32 EDT
This bug is in fact still there, however it's basically an uninstall race condition.

(The example's an EL5 package, but the error is still in the Rawhide SPEC)

error: %postun(tomcat5-server-lib-5.5.23-0jpp.7.el5_2.1.x86_64) scriptlet failed, exit status 127
/var/tmp/rpm-tmp.6596: line 1: /usr/bin/rebuild-gcj-db: No such file or directory

The spec should either include quite a few

Requires(postun): /usr/bin/rebuild-gcj-db

entries for the various packages 

or use the "/usr/bin/rebuild-gcj-db || :"

Comment 4 Mark Chappell 2009-08-06 13:14:28 EDT
Correction, it's corrected in Fedora, but still present in EL5

I see the patch applied in tomcat5-5.5.28-2.1.ep5.el5 (and newer)
