Re: BuildRoot in spec files?



>A macro doesn't work.  It won't get used unless BuildRoot is in the spec file.

I don't buy this at all. To start with, we can define a macro:

%buildrootdir   %{_tmppath}/%{name}-%{version}-%{release}-root-%(%{__id_u} -n)

This could be used in spec files:

BuildRoot: %{buildrootdir}

Just doing that much would be an improvement.

Then I look at somethings we did in the past like RPM_OPT_FLAGS and how we had to
put that in spec files by hand and then someone figured out how to get that done
automatically. I think we can make this get applied automatically, too.
