Description Jeff Bastian 2011-02-14 16:11:53 EST
Description of problem:
util-linux-2.13-0.56.el5 fails to build on RHEL 5.  It fails in the po directory:
make[1]: Entering directory `/builddir/build/BUILD/util-linux-2.13-pre7/po'
/bin/sh @MKINSTALLDIRS@ /var/tmp/util-linux-root/usr/share
/bin/sh: @MKINSTALLDIRS@: No such file or directory
make[1]: *** [install-data-yes] Error 127
make[1]: Leaving directory `/builddir/build/BUILD/util-linux-2.13-pre7/po'
make: *** [install-recursive] Error 1
error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.80077 (%install)
RPM build errors:
    Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.80077 (%install)
Child returncode was: 1

I'm not yet sure what changed to break this in RHEL 5.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rebuild util-linux-2.13-0.56.el5 from source rpm
Actual results:
fails with "@MKINSTALLDIRS@: No such file or directory" error in po directory

Expected results:
successful build of util-linux

Additional info:
This looks similar to Fedora bug 217186.  That bug was fixed with this commit:
Comment 1 Jeff Bastian 2011-02-14 16:23:11 EST
Hmm, this might be due to the rebase to gettext-0.17-1.el5 in RHEL 5.6, see bug 523713.  (It was gettext-0.14.6-4.el5 in RHEL 5.5)
Comment 2 Jeff Bastian 2011-02-14 16:42:48 EST
Created attachment 478718 [details]
patch to fix po/Makefile.in.in

The patch from Fedora works beautifully.  I was able to successfully build util-linux-2.13-0.56.el5.bz677452 with this patch.

This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for inclusion in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.7 and Red Hat does not plan to fix this issue the currently developed update.

Contact your manager or support representative in case you need to escalate this bug.
Comment 5 Karel Zak 2011-08-17 05:01:45 EDT
It seems that it should be enough to add 

  autoreconf -i

to the spec file, see https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=523713#c44
