Description seifried 1999-06-08 16:06:26 EDT
It fails to copy the rpm there (obviously as the dir
doesn't exist), and does give an error but it is annoying
because I left a rather large rpm building overnight and it
failed. rpm should check for the destination directory it
will dump the newly created rpm into and warn if it doesn't
exist BEFORE doing all the compiling. Minor but annoying.

There's nothing stopping you from writing your specfile as
	%build
	[ ! -d %{_rpmdir}/%{_arch} ] && exit 1
if you wish this functionality. There's a limit on what
rpm can do without intelligent intervention.
