Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 456662
mod_auth_kerb does not build from SRPM
Last modified: 2013-01-08 02:32:06 EST
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.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Rebuild SRPM as a non-root user
2. Watch it fail
Build failure with apxs not found
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.
