Description of problem:
[root@machine root]# rpm --rebuild php-4.2.2-8.0.7.src.rpm
php-4.2.2-8.0.7.src.rpm: No such file or directory
Installing "rpm-build" fixes the problem, but the error message could be much
more useful if it complained about being able to find files from rpm-build or
told me to try installing that RPM.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install a system without rpm-build
2.Try to build a .src.rpm file using "rpm --rebuild testfile.src.rpm". Note the
misleading error message.
3.Install the "rpm-build" package and try step 2 again, which will work.
This already fixed in rpm-4.1 by putting rpm build
modes into a seperate /usr/bin/rpmbuild executable.
