Description Glen Foster 2001-06-19 11:51:28 EDT
Description of Problem: with the 7.1 product, you cannot build the ftp SRPM
without having libtermcap-devel installed.   But, if "rpm -ba
/usr/src/redhat/SPECS/ftp*spec" is executed, you do NOT get an error from
rpm about missing/unsatisfied build dependencies.  If you install the
libtermcap-devel rpm, the ftp SRPM builds without problems.

How Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
   1. rpm -e libtermcap-devel
   2. rpm -Uvh <tree-path>/SRPMS/ftp*.src.rpm
   3. rpm -ba /usr/src/redhat/SPECS/ftp*spec
   4. rpm -Uvh <tree-path>/RedHat/RPMS/libtermcap-devel*
   5. rpm -ba /usr/src/redhat/SPECS/ftp*spec

Actual Results:
first 3 steps result in a failure WITHOUT a build-requires error from rpm
next 2 steps build the SRPM without fail

Expected Results:  I would expect an rpm error message to be written to
stderr informing me the ftp SRPM cannot be built without installing the
libtermcap-devel RPM.
Comment 1 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-06-25 10:41:36 EDT
BuildRequires: dependencies added in 0.17-12.
You're wrong about the actual requirement though, ftp wants ncurses-devel, it 
just falls back to libtermcap-devel if it can't find ncurses.
