Description hjl 2002-06-13 14:30:45 EDT
perl.spec has

find . -type f -name makefile | xargs perl -p -i -e 's/<(builtin|command line|b
find . -type f -name Makefile | xargs perl -p -i -e 's/<(builtin|command line)>

It is bad for building perl the first time. I will submit a patch.

For FC 1 all calls to perl in the spec file are to the already build
binary in $RPM_BUILD_ROOT, so perl does not BuildRequires perl.
