Description Vic 2008-07-25 09:05:35 EDT
Description of problem:
Rebuilding the mod_auth_kerb SRPM as a non-root user fails.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
5.1-3.el5 fails - 5.1-3 untested.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Rebuild SRPM as a non-root user
2. Watch it fail
Actual results:
Build failure with apxs not found

Expected results:
Correct build

Additional info:
apxs is needed by the build, and configure checks for it.

Unfortunately, httpd-devel puts apxs into /usr/sbin, which is not on path for
non-root users, so apxs is not found. The build bombs at that point.

As a workaround, /usr/sbin can be appended to PATH, which makes the build
succeed - but the fault should really be corrected with the call to configure in
the .spec file.
