Description of problem:
perl-5.6.1-34.99.6.src.rpm does not finish compiling in RH7.3.
All build dependencies are installed perl test fails in ndbm and anydbm test.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm --rebuild perl-5.6.1-34.99.6.src.rpm
2. whatch for errors
Actual Results: the package does not compile
Expected Results: the perl package should compile and finish up in a .386.rpm
It seems that db1 and db1-devel are a requeriment for buildint, but they are not
listed in .spec file.
I modified the perl.spec file like this:
%define threading 1
to allow threads in perl
Looks like you've been building a RawHide version of perl for RHL 6.x
on RHL 7.3. I don't think there have been such issues with
Closing ERRATA (looks nicer than WONTFIX or NOTABUG ;)
