trying to build mDNSResponder source RPM


Hello, I am new to building source RPMs.

My first attempt was with an older srpm that had numerous problems. However, the newest one has problems after successful building of the source at the end which I assume to be a result of verification of the RPM.

---------- contents of mDNSResponder_RPM_ALL/RPM_IGNORE ---------
mDNSResponder
mDNSResponder-debuginfo
---------- contents of ../../mDNSResponder-108.5/SPECS/mDNSResponder.spec RPM ---------
mDNSResponder
mDNSResponder-debuginfo
mDNSResponder-devel
mDNSResponder-server
mDNSResponder-util
---------- end of RPM lists ---------
ERROR: Please update the mDNSResponder Makefile RPM list variables
make[3]: *** [mDNSResponder.rpm] Error 1

Could someone translate what the error message means? I take this to mean that somehow the Makefile is defining RPM variables in a way different than the spec file. I don't see any RPM variables defined in the Makefile.

The source RPM can be found here.

I can't reproduce this. For me wgetting the file and 'rpmbuild --rebuild mDNSResponder-108.5-1.src.rpm' builds the four packages just fine. Maybe you could attach "build.log" you get from running 'rpmbuild --rebuild /path/to/mDNSResponder-108.5-1.src.rpm 2>&1|tee /some/temp/path/build.log'?
