Description Steve Grubb 2007-06-26 16:48:25 EDT
Description of problem:
When building the audit package for the RHEL5.1 release, swig dies like this:

make[2]: Entering directory `/builddir/build/BUILD/audit-1.5.4/swig'
swig -o audit_wrap.c -python -I. -I.. -I../lib -I/usr/include/python2.4
/usr/include/asm/types.h:51: Error: Syntax error in input(3).

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

How reproducible:
every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. make build
2. watch brew

Actual results:
ppc fails, other arches do not.

Expected results:
audit to build like other arches do.

Additional info:
This is blocking the audit errata completion for RHEL5.1.
Comment 2 Miloslav Trmač 2007-06-27 05:44:26 EDT
This was caused by swig, which can't parse __attribute(...).
