Description of problem:

On RH8.0, rebuilding octave-2.1.40-1.src.rpm from Phoebe requires
readline-devel, but rpmbuild doesn't recognize this requirement.

For octave, it is possible to compile without support for readline, but this is
not what is sought here.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.rpm -e readline-devel
2.rpmbuild --rebuild octave-2.1.40-1.src.rpm
3.
    

Actual Results:  During building it was claimed readline >= 4.2 needed, and then
buiding stopped.

Expected Results:  .i386.rpm should have been produced.

Comment 1 Lon Hohberger 2003-01-02 15:21:05 UTC
octave-2.1.40-2 should be in rawhide soon.  I assumed the desired operation was
to actually detect for readline-devel in the RPM build process and then produce
the following error, rather than partially build and fail:

error: Failed build dependencies:
        readline-devel is needed by octave-2.1.40-1
