Hi Dom,
        I'm trying to build an rpm of abi for RH 6.2. I used the command.

ABI_RELEASE_NUMBER=1xs distribution

inside directory:

running as root.

All goes well until...

+ cd abiword-0.7.13
/var/tmp/rpm-tmp.40528: abiword-0.7.13: No such file or directory
Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.40528 (%prep)
make[2]: *** [rpm] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory
make[1]: *** [distribution] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/msevior/abidir/0.7.13/abi-0.7.13/src'
make: *** [distribution] Error 2

This after an entire build is finished and a tree is packed...

BTW right near the start is of the rpm creation is..

+ cd /usr/src/redhat/BUILD
+ rm -rf abiword-0.7.13

Any Clues?
