"make rpm" target doesn't use rpmbuild
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:46:21 EDT
The "make rpm" target uses the obselete "rpm -ta" invocation to try to build the
package. This needs to be replaced with "rpmbuild -ta" and it works fine.
rpm -ta is the "standard" that works on every other distro and is in lots of
documentation. Make rpm is from the base kernel and has to work with all kernels.
Really I think rpm wants fixing at some point to know that if it seems a build
option of any kind to exec rpmbuild.
Component changed to rpm
THe build options moved out of /bin/rpm more than
2 years ago. Fix your Makefile, or see "man rpm"
in rpm-4.1 to configure rpm to exec build modes.

This is silly. The kernel folks blame the rpm folks and vice-versa. Something
like this patch may help.
