Description Jan Kratochvil 2005-06-04 01:55:58 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050513 Galeon/1.3.21

Description of problem:
The following first lines of the .spec file will create "arm" package.
Despite the line is commented.

# Lace:
# Do not: %define _target_cpu arm
# as rpm assumes 'target_platform' as the '_build'.
%define _prefix /usr/local/XYZZY-%{_vendor}-%{_target_os}

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Prepend the text to the .spec file as above.
2. Type rpmbuild -bb x.spec

Actual Results:  Package gets created in RPMS/arm/... etc.

Expected Results:  Package gets created in RPMS/i386/...

Macros are context free, are expanded everwhere they are found, inside strinsg, in comments, everywhere.

Do this instead (note doubled % to escape expansion):

# Do not: %%define _target_cpu arm
