Description of problem:
When rebuilding as a normal user, the SRPM build performs:
scrollkeeper-update -p /var/tmp/ggv-1.99.9-root/var/scrollkeeper

Upon doing so - the screen is flooded with the following:

Normal users should have no problems building SRPMs without requiring root
access to access system-level files.

ggv-1.99.9-5

I am having the same problem on RH-7.2.  I suspect the problem is a missing
file, as when I do:

   rpm -bl ggv.spec

I see:
---------------------------------------------------

Processing files: ggv-1.0.2-5.1
error: Could not open %files file /usr/src/redhat/BUILD/ggv-1.0.2/ggv.lang: No
such file or directory


RPM build errors:
    Could not open %files file /usr/src/redhat/BUILD/ggv-1.0.2/ggv.lang: No such
file or directory

---------------------------------------------------

Best Regards,
