Description Jochen Schlick 2006-09-24 03:11:46 UTC
Description of problem:
the reason is a tar error message which is created as a file
in the SPECS directory and this confuses the build process !!!

her the file name in the SPECS directory == "error message" 

-rw------- 1 root root    0 Sep 24 01:29 tar: Pattern matching characters used
in file names. Please,

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

How reproducible:
always with this version of tar. 

I reinstalled the tar-1.15.1-12.2 (Fedora Core 5 rpm) and 
everything works again !!!!

tar was downgraded to tar-1.15.1. It should be alright now.
