I have topsrcdir set to /usr/src/redhat/rawhide
in /etc/rpmrc.  The new rpm does not seem to read
the /etc/rpmrc file.

Jeff, all yours

Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 1999-02-02 15:10:59 UTC
Rpm 2.91 is b'twixt and b'tween two configuration schemes. The
current algorithm reads the usual rpmrc files:
and then reads the new macro file
which hides the /etc/rpmrc configured value.

Here's a workaround:
In /etc/rpmrc:
	macrofiles:	/usr/lib/rpm/macros:/etc/macros
In /etc/macros:
	%_topdir	/usr/src/redhat/rawhide

Alternatively, delete the %_topdir line in /usr/lib/rpm/macros.
