Dear list,

I'm trying to build tcl8.6.0 which some developers want/need. Took the 
spec file from srpm, and updated to 8.6 as such:


What I did:
- updated version to 8.6.0
- disabled sdt
- disabled patches for 5.8.x
- changed configure options (s/disable-threads/enable-threads/)

and gave it a try.

it builds fine, works as far as %install, does the "for i in *.h" (line 
104) and gives me a

RPM build errors:
    Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.Fxgmu1 (%install)

now, what puzzles me:

1) the exit status does not give me a line or something what failed
2) the rpm-tmp.Fxgmu1 looks good from inspection
3) sh -x /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.Fxgmu1 runs happily and performs as expected.
4) rpmbuild -vv does not give any more clues as without.

ideas anyone how to debug further?

best regards
