Comment 1 Frank Ch. Eigler 2007-04-09 15:27:51 UTC
While you are correct that the systemtap spec file refers to an older elfutils
source, this is not in fact used for RHEL5 builds.  On RHEL5, the spec file
arranges to unset the "bundled_elfutils" flag, which makes systemtap build
against the system elfutils library.

Comment 2 Vesselin Kolev 2007-04-09 16:08:02 UTC
I thing, that this may cause problem when someone tries to compile embeded
system based on RHEL5 sources. You are right, that (at this time and version of
spec) the correct build must be produced lake that:

$ rpmbuild --sign -ba --define="dist .el5" --define="rhel 5" systemtap.spec

but I think that spec file must be corrected in the future.
