Description of problem:
The act of building (not installing) the Canna binary RPM causes a new user to
be defined on the system on which the RPM is built.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run: rpm --rebuild Canna-3.5b2-62.src.rpm
2. After build completes, inspect system log.
3. In system log, note these new entries:
useradd: new group: name=canna, gid=39
useradd: new user: name=canna, uid=39, gid=39, home=/var/lib/canna,
Actual Results: New user and group created on build system.
Expected Results: New user and group "canna" should be created when RPM is
*installed*, not when it's built.
Fixed in Canna-3.5b2-67
