I am using rpmbuild a few years to make my own packages and preferred build cycle for me is:
1) Download source from SVN site.
2) Do configuration
3) Install my own patches and build and install binaries in usual - make; make install
3) Test the program
4) When program behaviour satisfies , build rpm packages to redistribute
It is easier for me to build packages from already tested and running binaries, and up to FC10 it was OK to run:
rpmbuild -bb specfile
The last command was making a binary package from files listed in specfile.
In FC10 the picture is different, now rpmbuild command returns errors about missing files:
RPM build errors:
File not found: /root/rpmbuild/BUILDROOT/somefile
I did not found any documented change that can bring to this.
How rpmbuild can be customized to behave like in past?
