Description of problem:
Robert Brown(email?) reports on hekafs.org blog that rpmbuild -a hekafs.spec fails
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Additional info:Can you clarify how this applies to the Rawhide package of HekaFS? Specifically this:
Let’s say we already rolled glusterfs 3.2.3 and have it installed. Typically I would just rpmbuild -a hekafs.spec, but I wind up with this:

My preliminary investigation showed that "rpmbuild -a" isn't even a valid option in current versions, and that the problem was only reproducible by using "rpmbuild --nodeps" to attempt a build without prerequisites (specifically glusterfs-devel) being satisfied. Unless more information is provided, I'd be inclined to call this pilot error.
Closing. I can't tell what -a was supposed to do, it's not in the rpmbuild man page any version of rpm from 4.4.x to current (or rpm5). I am mildly interested in knowing what distro has an rpmbuild with -a.
As Jeff points out, this can be exactly reproduced by not having glusterfs-devel installed and building with `rpmbuild -bb --nodeps SPECS/hekafs.spec` and is an operator error.
Installing glusterfs-devel should result in hekafs building successfully. We can reopen this bz if we get more information to the contrary.
