This is 100% wrong... there is another error inside your .spec file. Most likely, you're wrongly using %exclude against a binary/library.
Thanks again for your polite feedback.
Did I offend you with my reply? Apologies if this sounded rude to you (it does not to me, and was certainly not meant to be rude)
%exclude is ONLY suitable to exclude a file to be matched by a glob AND only if this said file ends up in a different sub-package.
Any other case, if the file is not to be packaged: rm it after it has been installed.
We exclude three man pages which are installed unintentionally.
The rule would still apply: if it should not be packaged at all, it should be deleted in the install section. Man pages normally do not cause this issue though when excluded... binaries do (and it's generally a pain to find, so I'd simply recommend to never sue %exclude, unless the file does go to a different package)
There might be something else broken. But who knows.
I can try to branch and remove the %exclude 'fix' added to see what this gives.. but it will have to wait for tomorrow I'm afraid.
