Description Ralf Corsepius 2012-05-22 02:45:56 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):

Actual results:
The autoconf package provides/requires perl(Autom4te::...).

Expected results:
The autoconf package not to provide/require perl(Autom4te::...).

Additional info:
* 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
is dysfunctional.

* 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.
