Ah, that's easy fixing.
Hmmm, the error message is wrong: "%_dbapi" is the
name of the macro. Fix todo++ ...
Verify that %_dbapi value is bogus by doing
[jbj@fedora10 rpmdb]$ rpm --showrc | grep dbapi
-14: _dbapi 3
-14: _dbapi_rebuild 3
The correct values are displayed above.
Ironically, the current values for %_dbapi and %_dbapi_rebuild
make no sense whatsoever:
3 == Berkeley DB db-4.x.y
4 == sqlite3
but that is what is currently implemented for hysterical reasons.
You can specify macro values on the CLI as, say
--define '_dbpai 3'
but you are likely just not reading macro configuration
for some reason, usually because paths are not compiled
say? It should display all the configuration macros
used by rpm, including %_dbapi.
