Hi All,

Has anyone else built 1.11.14 rpms using the spec file distributed with
the source tarball?

In 1.11.14, line 89 was added to
 rm $RPM_BUILD_ROOT/%{_infodir}/dir

with the following comment in the changelog:
* Tue Feb 17 2004 Derek Price <address@hidden>
        - Remove info DIR file to avoid RPM warning us about installing
        files we don't
        - package.

On my build box (Redhat 9) rpmbuild fails with the following error:
------- snip -------
+ rm /tmp/cvs-root//usr/share/info/dir
rm: cannot lstat `/tmp/cvs-root//usr/share/info/dir': No such file or
error: Bad exit status from /tmp/rpm-tmp.28010 (%install)

RPM build errors:
    Bad exit status from /tmp/rpm-tmp.28010 (%install)
------- snip -------

If I remove the line in question the build completes successfully,
without the warning the changelog claims to be addressing.

Have I misconfigured something, or is there a bug in the .spec?
