Description luc.maisonobe 1999-11-02 15:52:18 UTC
When I used the following lines in a .spec file, the
%{varrotdir} macro is set to /usr/local even on a Linux box.

%ifos Linux
%define varrootdir   /usr
%define varrootdir   /usr/local

After several trials (%ifos vs %ifnos, Linux vs solaris) it
seems the last alternative is always used, regardless of the

This occurs with rpm 3.0.3.

This is similar to #5364, i.e. #defines are always executed inside if
statements in the order specified, regardless of whether that part of
the statement should be executed or not.
