Description David Lehman 2005-05-19 17:14:34 UTC
Description of problem:
anaconda writes the canonical arch into /etc/rpm/platform. rpm uses this arch by
default when doing package builds. The problem is that the macros files for the
canonical arches are wrong. They don't define %_multilibno and %optflags is wrong.

More importantly, rpmrc doesn't have the correct buildarchtranslate entries for
ppc64pseries and ppc64iseries. 

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. try to rebuild any package on a pSeries without using --target
Actual results:
The resulting package will be .ppc64pseries.rpm

Expected results:
The resulting package should be .ppc.rpm
