Description Gordon Messmer 1999-08-14 18:47:18 UTC
When attempting to build a package whose source contains
symlinks, chgrp returns -1.

The solution appears to be changing the macro:
%_fixgroup    		[ `%{__id} -u` = '0' ] && %{__chgrp} -Rf
%_fixgroup    		[ `%{__id} -u` = '0' ] && %{__chgrp} -Rhf
in /usr/lib/rpm/macros

Fixed in (as yet unreleased) rpm-3.0.3. Thanks for the patch.
