Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 673
com_err.h in wrong directory or com_err man page wrong
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:48 EDT
The com_err man page declares #include <com_err.h> yet after
an install this file is placed in /usr/include/et/com_err.h.
As a result many files in the cyrus distrib. fail to
compile (they reference it as the man page suggests).
In a related item: the /usr/bin/compile_et script has a
wrong directory assigned to ET_DIR causing this script to
fail. The correct setting should be ET_DIR=/usr/share/et.
I have verified that these are true as reported. The script does fail
complaining about not being able to find its template files which are
located in /usr/share/et.
Fixed in dist-6.0 e2fsprogs-1.13-3

This was fixed in e2fsprogs 1.14, but because you guys fixed the bug
by hacking the spec file to post-process the installed file, I didn't
notice the fix. This was a really ugly way to fix things guys....
why didn't you use the RPM patch file facility. I do scan the redhat
RPM looking for patches you may have applied, but I don't necessarily
go looking for gross kludges located in the spec file. This is a
problem since the kludge is still in the spec file in
e2fsprogs-1.15-3, even though the shell script bug was long fixed.
Lucky for you I noticed this while I was preparing my 1.16 release, so
I noticed the man page problem. But I must say I'm pretty
