Description Karsten Hopp 2007-01-24 13:59:03 UTC
Description of problem:
gettext builds a jar file when java is present in the build environment and
rpmbuild fails due to an unpackaged file:

Checking for unpackaged file(s): /usr/lib/rpm/check-files
error: Installed (but unpackaged) file(s) found:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Comment 1 Jens Petersen 2007-02-01 02:28:14 UTC
Can you attach the buildroot package list (maybe gzipped?)
I'm having trouble getting the Java compiler to be recognised
by configure.

I have these installed at least:

(The configure behaviour for gcj seems to have changed from gettext-0.15.)

Comment 2 Jens Petersen 2007-02-01 04:05:30 UTC
According to Bruno Haible on bugs-gnu-utils, gcj < 4.3 can't create
fully portable .jar files and that is why recent gettext is not compiling

Perhaps you have some java installed why is building it for you?

Comment 3 Karsten Hopp 2007-02-01 10:09:22 UTC
I'm not entirely sure as I've already deleted the buildroot, but I think I had
the following packages installed:

But the problem here is probably that you should add a 'rm -f
$RPM_BUILD_ROOT/%{_datadir}/%{name}/libintl.jar' or '--disable-java' to the
configure options if you don't want to ship this file and it just happens to
build sometimes.

Comment 4 Jens Petersen 2007-02-01 23:40:54 UTC
Here is the reply on bugs-gnu-utils for the record:

"--disable-java" also removes other java related files
so I don't really want to do that.

Do you remember what tree you used for the test build?  It might give more clues.

It really shouldn't be possible to build that .jar file with gcj < 4.3.

Comment 5 Jens Petersen 2007-03-26 03:17:39 UTC
I added a build switch for the jar file.
