yum install rpm-build should install an rpmbuild version that works as expected for fedora. Currently, it does not because it is missing the dependancy on redhat-rpm-config.Well I tend to agree: it would be the least surprising behaviour for most fedora packagers.
I think it's a silly idea.rpm-build is a generic tool and redhat-rpm-config is a redhat specific/proprietary add-on/plugin to it.
Though I don't have a current example of current redhat-rpm-config breaking generic rpms, history is full of such cases.Though I understand the point about keeping rpmbuild generic - I don't see how pulling in redhat-rpm-config would break generic rpms?
I think I BZ'ed several of them several years ago.
Surely most people have it installed anyway.
Well, fedora packagers will have it installed, because fedora-packager pulls it in. Ralf -- devel mailing list devel@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx https://admin.fedoraproject.org/mailman/listinfo/devel
