Description J. Kyllo 2001-05-30 15:30:48 EDT
Description of Problem:
When using --rebuild, --recompile, or any of the -b options, rpm simply
prints the help summary and has a return value of 0 (i.e. no error.)  I
have tried it with multiple source rpms from different vendors and still to
no avail.

How Reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. $ rpm --rebuild <source package>

Actual Results:
standard help summary

Expected Results:
building of the package
