As if RPM doesn't have that...  It would seem that the SRPM that's being
built is broken (at least from a RedHat standpoint).  Is there some sort
of pre-req in the .spec file that is asking for /bin/sh?  What is the
result of "rpm -qf /bin/sh" on that machine?

I rebuild nearly everything from SRPM, and really haven't seen this problem,
except when somone had the wrong pre-reqs in the .spec file.  Install the
SRPM, then look in it's spec file in /usr/src/redhat/SPECS

 Just because something doesn't do what you planned it to do doesn't mean
 it's useless.  -- T. Edison
