When you use BuildRoot the directory isn't created and the process stop with an error.
It breaks spec files that worked perfectly in previous versions.
Version in question is rpm-3.0.3-0.32.i386.rpm
Comment 1 osman 1999-09-28 11:21:59 EDT
Seems like bug#4097 is related qua error message.
Only on this system "/var/tmp" is not a symbolic link but on a
different filesystem.
Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 1999-09-28 11:53:59 EDT
I do not know why you think #4097 is related to your problem.

What directory is not created? $RPM_BUILD_ROOT? It has *always* been
the responsibility of the packager to create that directory, usually
with some variant of

	...
	%install
	rm -rf $RPM_BUILD_ROOT
	mkdir -p $RPM_BUILD_ROOT/usr/whatever
	...

	%clean
	rm -rf $RPM_BUILD_ROOT
