Description of problem:
I wonder what tricks are used at RH to build this package, it simply doesn't
work for me.
Each rpm --rebuild gives me:

Creating Makefile from ./
Creating libtiff/Makefile from ./libtiff/
Creating man/Makefile from ./man/
Creating tools/Makefile from ./tools/
Creating port/ from ./port/
+ cd libtiff
+ ln -s
+ cd ..
+ export LDOPTS=-s
+ make 'LIBJPEG=-L/usr/lib -ljpeg' 'LIBGZ=-L/usr/lib -lz'
= libtiff
make: invalid option -- L
Usage: make [options] [target] ...
  -b, -m                      Ignored for compatibility.

It seems the culprit is the original tiff-v3.5.7/, it contains:

all default:
        @if [ "no" = yes ]; then \
            ${ECHO} "= "port; cd port; ${MAKE} -${MAKEFLAGS}; \
        else \
            true; \
        @${ECHO} "= "libtiff; cd libtiff; ${MAKE} -${MAKEFLAGS}
        @${ECHO} "= "tools; cd tools; ${MAKE} -${MAKEFLAGS}
        @${ECHO} "= "man; cd man; ${MAKE} -${MAKEFLAGS}

Note the dashes (-) in front of ${MAKEFLAGS}? Together with the LIBJPEG= command
line argument they form the "invalid" -L option for make.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpmbuild --rebuild libtiff src rpm

Comment 1 Jonathan Blandford 2003-01-24 21:38:33 UTC
Current Rawhide (libtiff-3.5.7-9.src.rpm) works for me.

Comment 2 franz.sirl-kernel 2003-02-01 21:48:10 UTC
Now I found out why it works for you, you are building on a SMP machine, or?
Try on a UP one or remove the %{?_smp_mflags} from the make invocation in the
specfile and watch it failing.

Comment 3 Phil Knirsch 2003-02-11 17:06:41 UTC
OK, verified and fixed in libtiff-3.5.7-11, building right now and available via
rawhide soon.

Read ya, Phil
