Description ksanthan 1999-05-15 18:13:58 EDT
When the specfile has CR-LF as the line separator,
rpm gets confused and does not execute commands properly.

For example, if the command is:


rpm attempts to execute:  make\r

Converting the spec file to UNIX format alleviates the
problem.  However, this is not always easily done, since
a user may desire to merely rebuild a SRC.RPM package.

At the current time, rpm runs only on machines where newline
is used as a line separator.
