Description Patrice Dumas 2008-09-25 12:25:25 EDT
Description of problem:

I try to rebuild the cernlib package in fedora, and I get:

error: %patch without corresponding "Patch:" tag

However (unless I am missing something) all the %patch have a -P, 
so, either it is a rpmbuild bug, or the error message should state 
the -P number.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Yup, it is a rpmbuild bug. It is now fixed upstream and in 4.5.90-0.git8461.8.

It no more complains if %patch is used with -P.
