Description Peter Bowen 2001-03-05 10:39:32 EST
If you do 

rpm --query --specfile foo.spec --queryformat  \

where foo has an exclude arch option, rpm will show "(none)" for both
exclusive arch and excludearch on all packages.  I used php.spec from Red
Hat 7.0 as the test.  This occurs with the rpm distributed with RHL6.2, the
6.2 errata, 7.0, and wolverine.
Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2001-03-05 11:31:38 EST
This problem has the same root cause as #27859, as ExcludeArch: is part of a
header, not the parsed package header.

*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 27589 ***
Comment 2 Peter Bowen 2001-03-05 17:41:07 EST
Is there a  known work-around?  I understand that this is due to the recursive
nature of specfile parsing, but it seems like there should be some way to dump
the buildarch info.
Comment 3 Jeff Johnson 2001-03-05 17:49:17 EST
Sure, grep is your friend. Try
	grep -i "^ExcludeArch:" php.spec
and variants thereof.
