Description Glen Foster 2001-06-19 19:21:43 UTC
Description of Problem: with the 7.1 product, you cannot build the gnuchess
SRPM without having ncurses-devel installed.   But, if "rpm -ba
/usr/src/redhat/SPECS/gnuchess*spec" is executed, you do NOT get an error
from rpm about missing/unsatisfied build dependencies.  If you install the
ncurses-devel rpm, the gnuchess SRPM builds without problems.

How Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
   1. rpm -e ncurses-devel
   2. rpm -Uvh <tree-path>/SRPMS/gnuchess*.src.rpm
   3. rpm -ba /usr/src/redhat/SPECS/gnuchess*spec
   4. rpm -Uvh <tree-path>/RedHat/RPMS/ncurses-devel*
   5. rpm -ba /usr/src/redhat/SPECS/gnuchess*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 gnuchess SRPM cannot be built without installing
the ncurses-devel RPM.
