Description of problem:
When upgrading ypserv per https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2003-173.html this
warning: /var/yp/Makefile saved as /var/yp/Makefile.rpmsave
Since the only difference between the to Makefiles in that /bin/gawk was changed
to /usr/bin/gawk (which is a symlink to /bin/gawk anyway) what was the point of
making people put their Makefiles back where they should be?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -Fvh http://updates.redhat.com/8.0/en/os/i386/ypserv-2.8-0.80E.i386.rpm
Actual Results: warning: /var/yp/Makefile saved as /var/yp/Makefile.rpmsave
Additional info: I'm filing this for the rh 8 rpm, but it probably applies to
all the rpms in the errata.
