Comment 1 Roozbeh Pournader 2005-06-11 14:59:34 UTC
It seems that this is actually a missing BuildReq on gettext-devel.

Comment 2 Paul Bolle 2005-07-14 23:26:04 UTC
1) I can confirm this is just a missing BuildRequires on gettext-devel.
2) This bug is still present in FC4 (as it also has rpm-4.4.1-21).
3) Should I file a bug against FC4 to make sure this bug also shows up when
querying on FC4 (just as I did before finding this report)? That report could be
closed as a dupe right away, of course ...
4) Anyway, should be trivial to patch (which I still would be happy to do).

Comment 3 Roozbeh Pournader 2005-07-16 13:49:46 UTC
Changing Version to FC4, based on pebolle's comment.

Comment 4 Paul Bolle 2005-07-30 22:01:17 UTC
OT: can't all testing bugs be automatically upgraded to their successor 
(test1->test2->test3->release) whenever a new test release and/or (just) the
final release is available? At least, I assume that test releases are only
(really) useful until the next (test) release.

rawhide rpm.spec has this BuildReq.
