Description Seweryn Walentynowicz 2003-05-26 12:15:33 EDT
Description of problem:
libxml2-2.4.19-4.src.rpm cannot rebuild on system without libxml2-devel 
installed on

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. check if libxml2-devel package doesn't installed in your system
2. rpm --rebuild libxml2-2.4.19-4.src.rpm
Actual results:
rebuilding crashed at %install stage with message:
    RPM build errors:  
     File not found by glob: /var/tmp/libxml2-2.4.19-root/usr/lib/python*/site-

Expected results:
  no errors :o)

Additional info:
  Problem is about building dynamic shared object libxml2.la with
libtool command, which expect shared library to linking with at /usr/lib/
location, instead of in RPM_BUILD directory tree
Comment 1 Daniel Veillard 2003-07-14 18:14:23 EDT
Seems fixed in recent releases:
[root@gnome root]# rpm -qa | grep libxml2
[root@gnome root]# cat /etc/redhat-release
Red Hat Linux release 9 (Shrike)
[root@gnome root]# rpmbuild --rebuild /tmp/libxml2-2.5.8-1.src.rpm
