Description Matthew Miller 2001-12-04 13:17:35 EST
Description of Problem:

spec file contains:

  perl -pi -e 's,^man_prefix=.*,man_prefix=\$\(prefix)/share,g' Make.Rules

to make the man pages get installed in /usr/share/man instead of /usr/man.
Then, later on, it uses the %{_mandir} in the files list, which of course
doesn't work, because that points to /usr/man. This needs to be reconciled
-- the patch line should use the proper mandir instead of always sticking
share in there.

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


How Reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. build rpm on RH 6.2

Actual Results:
fails to build -- can't find man pages

Expected Results:
correct package generated with man pages in correct location
