Description of Problem:
rpmbuild --rebuild fails with glibc, binutils and perl for unpackaged files.
Here's the perl output:

Requires: perl = 2:5.8.0-58 libcrypt.so.1 libc.so.6 libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.0)
libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.1) libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.2) libdl.so.2 libdl.so.2(GLIBC_2.0)
libdl.so.2(GLIBC_2.1) libm.so.6 libnsl.so.1 libperl.so libpthread.so.0
libpthread.so.0(GLIBC_2.0) libpthread.so.0(GLIBC_2.2) libutil.so.1
Checking for unpackaged file(s): /usr/lib/rpm/check-files /var/tmp/perl-root
error: Installed (but unpackaged) file(s) found:

Similar errors for glibc-2.3-2 and binutils- 

Is this an rpmbuild error or an error in all these packages?

Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2002-10-11 23:06:02 EDT
Let's turn this into a category bug.

rpm-4.1 now checks (by default) to see whether
any files were built but not packaged.

You have the following choices:

0) (recommended) figure out why the files were unpackaged.
Some files may need to be added to the %files manifest, other
files may need to be removed from $RPM_BUILD_ROOT.

1) install the redhat-rpm-config package which
warns, but does not terminate the build.

2) configure your machine to warn but not terminate a build:

    echo "%_unpackaged_files_terminate_build  0" >> /etc/rpm/macros

Keeping this category bug open no longer seems necessary.
Comment 3 Peter Fales 2003-06-25 23:25:48 EDT
Just a note for the RedHat 9 users that happen to run into this problem and find
this bug report.  Option 1) doesn't work in RH 9, as
%_unpackaged_files_terminate_build  is now set to 1 in redhat-rpm-config. 
Option 2) works, but the file to modify is /usr/lib/rpm/macros.
