Description Rex Dieter 2012-12-10 10:07:01 EST
Compared to prior texlive releases (like what's included in fedora 17), texlive packaging no longer seems to provide

On fedora 17, /etc/rpm/macros.texlive contained:
# macros to keep trees in texlive consistent
%_texmf_main     /usr/share/texmf
%_texmf_vendor   /usr/share/texmf
%_texmf_var      /var/lib/texmf
%_texmf_conf     /etc/texmf

Was this on purpose or oversight/regression?

I ask because this change currently breaks pvs-sbcl builds...

And also ctan-cm-lgc-fonts and ctan-kerkis-fonts...
Comment 2 Jindrich Novy 2013-01-28 06:42:58 EST
Ok, I added the macros file in texlive-base package. I will build new texlive as soon as new harfbuzz is in buildroots.
