Redhat Package Manager on 8.0


I have a piece of software I installed on 7.3 that I am now trying to install on 8.0 with rpm. The script follows the form

INSTALLDIR=/opt/install/XE
export INSTALLDIR
rpm -iv --relocate /opt/install=$INSTALLDIR dbpkg.rpm

This works beautifully on 7.3. When I try it on 8.0 I get the message:

ERROR INSTALLDIR does not match the target directory

It then gives me an example of what to use that matches what I just typed in. The target directory of /opt/install/XE exists with basically 777 persmissions. I'm logged in as root like I am supposed to be.

Is there a bug in the relocate option of rpm on redhat 8.0? If so, is there a work around?
