In our project we are using rpmbuild to package our software and provide it as rpm.
We are planing to upgrade from rpm 4.4 to 4.8.
To build our rpm, I'm creating custom rpmmacros which is sourced in custom rpmrc which is passed with --rcfile option.
rpmrc is like: include: globalrcfile macrofiles: globalmacros:myCustomMacroFile
foundout this mechanism does not work for rpm 4.8, looks like
macrofiles is ignored at all. I tried to use --macros but lot of the
global macros, variables, was not prepared correctly.
My requirement is to set, overwrite some global macros, but I require mechanism which works under 4.4 and 4.8.
tried to use --define which works fine in case of simple variables, but
when I owervrite e.g %debug_package command line call is not
acceptable, anyway it leads to some escaping issue.
