Description Peter Bowen 2001-05-16 14:03:18 EDT
Description of Problem:

ld, when invoked manually, looks for /usrusr instead of /usr in some cases.
This is due to a long standing bug that the specfile has:

make tooldir=%{_prefix}usr all info

in it.  %{_prefix}usr expands into /usrusr with in incorrect. Instead, 
this should be:

make tooldir=%{_prefix} all info

This bug is found in the current rawhide version of binutils
(, and has been an issue since before the version released
with 6.2 (  6.2, 7.0, and 7.1 all exhibit the problem.
