On the base system I did forget to install redhat-rpm-config. Even
though this will not make the build fail it does result in a much bigger
glibc-2.12-1.7.el6.x86_64.rpm as compared to the original
glibc-2.12-1.4.el6.x86_64.rpm, even though almost all of the files
inside are identical in size. I suppose the difference in file size is
caused by the lack of brp-compress and the invocation of it after the

Since the macros file is missing too
%_binary_filedigest_algorithm 8
is not set when building on the base system. This option sets the
FILEDIGEST checksum to use SHA-256 instead of MD5. Could this be the
cause for rpm not to consider the config and document files from the
x86_64 and i686 glibc rpms to be identical?
