Description Curtis Doty 2002-02-13 03:18:53 EST
I'm not sure what the proper fix is.

 - RPM.h won't load rpmcli.h unless >=4.0.3
 - recent change to Makefile.PL prevents getting it from old rpmlib.h
 - but specfile ignores Makefile anyways :~/

Workaround: Build without perl subpackage. Install. Then rebuild with.
Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2002-02-13 17:27:36 EST
The proper fix is to make the rpm-perl package self-hosting,
done in rpm-4.0.4
Comment 2 Curtis Doty 2002-02-14 01:14:57 EST
According to RPM.h, there is no way to find rpmQueryFlags_e if *system* rpm is 
< 4.0.3.

I'll leave closed per your action but I had this symptom on the rpm-4.0.4-7x.2 
specfile from rawhide.
