Description of problem:
I downloaded lynx-2.8.4-17.src.rpm (from 7.2 distro) and tried to build it.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 2.8.4-17

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm --rebuild lynx-2.8.4-17.src.rpm

Actual Results:  make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/redhat/BUILD/lynx2-8-4/intl'
cd po && make CC="gcc"
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/redhat/BUILD/lynx2-8-4/po'
file=./`echo cs | sed 's,.*/,,'`.gmo \
  && rm -f $file && PATH=../src:$PATH no -o $file cs.po
/bin/sh: no: command not found
make[1]: *** [cs.gmo] Error 127
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/redhat/BUILD/lynx2-8-4/po'
make: *** [all] Error 2
error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.68270 (%build)
RPM build errors:
    Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.68270 (%build)

Additional info:

source rpm.

like an improperly generated makefile. Something seems to be calling a locale name as a 

Comment 2 Joseph Shraibman 2002-02-07 23:19:58 UTC
I have rpm 4.0.3 installed on this system.  I have automake-1.4-4 and
make-3.77-6 installed.  Should I upgrade those?
