Hi All,

I am running White Box Enterprise Linux 4 (WBEL4),
which is the same thing as Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4

I needed to compile a src rpm, so I looked in
the rpm man page to find out how to do it.  The
man page said to use "rpmbuild."  rpmbuild seems to
be missing.  Not on my hard drive; not on any of
my four install cd's; could not find one on  What happened to rpmbuild???

Many thanks,

a) Install the development group at install time 
b) Install development tools group post install with yum/up2date

rpmbuild is in the rpm-build package, but you'll need the compiler, linker, etc
for most packages too...
