Description of problem:
When I try to build my software RPM, the build end by : (with rpmbuild -ba)

Requires(interp): /bin/sh /bin/sh
Requires(rpmlib): rpmlib(CompressedFileNames) <= 3.0.4-1 rpmlib(PayloadFilesHave
Prefix) <= 4.0-1

Checking for unpackaged file(s): /usr/lib/rpm/check-files %{buildroot}
getOutputFrom(): Broken pipe

The problem is note systematic: when running 100 times the command it works 
about 2 times ?????
The packages can be build fine on redhat 7.3, 7.2 and 8.0

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
98 times out of 100

Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2003-05-21 20:24:58 EDT

Either add a BuildRoot: directive, or disable the check files
helper by adding to spec file
    %undefine __check_files
Comment 2 Paul Berger 2003-05-23 14:10:07 EDT
I have the same problem with RH9. The only solution that works is disabling the 
## %__check_files         /usr/lib/rpm/check-files %{buildroot}
in the /usr/lib/rpm/macros file or 
 %undefine __check_files 
in local ~/.rpmmacros.
