Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 823770
New: Bogus provides/requires perl(Autom4te::...)
Last modified: 2012-06-27 23:28:56 EDT
Description of problem:
The autoconf-rpm in rawhide carries bogus perl(Autom4te::...)
# rpm -q -provides -p autoconf-2.69-1.fc18.noarch.rpm
# rpm -q --requires -p autoconf-2.69-1.fc18.noarch.rpm
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
The autoconf package provides/requires perl(Autom4te::...).
The autoconf package not to provide/require perl(Autom4te::...).
* AFAIS from autoconf.spec, the cause is its perl-module filter not having been
updated to recent rpm conventions. The old filter, the spec still contains, now
* The F17 package suffers from the same issue.
* The F16 package in git would also suffer from this issue, if it was rebuilt.
So far, however, F16 ships an F15-built automake binary, which doesn't expose this bug.
FYI: This issue has caused me to furtherly look into this package and has caused me to find further issues. I am currently working on a patch, which I hope to be able to propose soon.
