Yup. It's been fixed upstream a couple of months ago though.
Comment 2 Horst H. von Brand 2008-06-15 20:11:29 EDT
Nope, it is still in rpm-build- (latest rawhide version, just
checked to make sure).
Comment 3 Panu Matilainen 2008-06-16 01:42:44 EDT
rawhide != upstream
Comment 4 Panu Matilainen 2008-07-14 08:13:11 EDT
And now it's in rawhide too...
