[CentOS] Tripwire Question

Here's partial output.  The command I ran with strace was:
   strace /usr/loca/bin/tripwire -m i

This initializes the tripwire database.  I include what I think is the
relevant output here:

   lstat("/ora", {st_mode=S_IFDIR|0755, st_size=4096, ...}) = 0
   write(1, "The object: \"/ora\" is on a diffe"..., 61) = 61
   lstat("/selinux", {st_mode=S_IFDIR|0755, st_size=4096, ...}) = 0
   open("/selinux", O_RDONLY|O_NONBLOCK|O_DIRECTORY) = 4
   fcntl(4, F_SETFD, FD_CLOEXEC)           = 0
   getdents(4, /* 2 entries */, 32768)     = 48
   getdents(4, /* 0 entries */, 32768)     = 0
   close(4)                                = 0
   lstat("/srv", {st_mode=S_IFDIR|0755, st_size=4096, ...}) = 0
   open("/srv", O_RDONLY|O_NONBLOCK|O_DIRECTORY) = 4
   fcntl(4, F_SETFD, FD_CLOEXEC)           = 0
   getdents(4, /* 2 entries */, 32768)     = 48
   getdents(4, /* 0 entries */, 32768)     = 0
   close(4)                                = 0

I looked at the lstat man page, and there is a blurb on how it treats
symbolic links as individual files.  But /ora isn't a symbolic link.

RHEL != CentOS.


That said, what happens when you strace tripwire?
