Description of problem:
When I run 'rpmbuild -tb somepackage.tar.gz' and somepackage.tar.gz does not
contain a somepackage.spec, rpmbuild kindly creates an empty file in my
/usr/src/redhat/SPECS with the name 'tar: *.spec: Not found in archive'
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
rpm-4.2-0.25.1 (but this bug has been around for a long time
Steps to Reproduce:
2. touch foo.tar.gz
3. rpmbuild -tb foo.tar.gz
4. ls /usr/src/redhat/SPECS/tar*
[noa@c-2c1a72d5 slask]$ ls /usr/src/redhat/SPECS/tar*
/usr/src/redhat/SPECS/tar: *.spec: Not found in archive
no file :)
