Description Enrico Scholz 2002-02-14 22:56:02 EST
Description of Problem:

When trying to rebuild tetex as an user who has a local texmf-root under
~/texmf, the build fails at a sanity check, since tetex (or better latex2html)
uses kpsewhich to determine paths:

| Executing(%build): /bin/sh -e /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.97346
| ...
| /usr/src/redhat/BUILD/teTeX-1.0/latex2html-2K.1beta
| creating cache ./config.cache
| ...
| checking for TeX include path... /home/ensc/texmf/tex/latex/html

Therefore, some files will be installed under ~/texmf/... and are missing in the
final file-list.

Simplest way to prevent this will be the unsetting of HOME:

|  %build
|  unset TEXINPUTS || :
|+ unset HOME || %

Done in 1.0.7-42.  I used:
+ unset HOME || :
