How Reproducible:  
Steps to Reproduce:  
1.  redefine _prefix 
2.  try to build perl package. 
Additional information. 
%{....} macros should be used.

Comment 1 Warren Togami 2005-05-28 07:30:55 UTC
Sorry, we do not support relocatable packages.  If you want the package to be
relocatable please submit a spec patch for review against FC4.
