Trouble building the aterm RPM ??


Hi,
I downloaded the latest source RPM for aterm, the 0.4.2-1, and on trying to build it with rpmbuild --rebuild I am getting several errors during the build such as:
command.c:2713: error: request for member `win' in something not a structure or union
command.c:2718: error: request for member `beg' in something not a structure or union
command.c:2719: error: request for member `end' in something not a structure or union
and at the end it tells me:

rpm construction error:
tee user can't be found - root user
file not found: /%{_buildroot}/usr/X!!R6/bin/aterm

iI tried to untar the source tarball and I am getting similar errors. I have installed aterm from the rpm many times with no problems, why am I getting so many errors building it? I am able to build other softwares with no trouble.

cheers!

Thanks I appreciate the reply but I went back to slackware. Fedora looks promising once the bugs are worked out.
