Where does the installation of rpm-version of MS expect its src.rpm
files? I have a directory with install.sh and all the src.rpm files.
When I run ./install.sh I get messages like:

|Good. You have the patch command.
|Good, you have /usr/src/redhat in place.
|Writing a .rpmmacros file in your home directory to stop
|unpackaged files breaking the build process.
|You can delete it once MailScanner is installed if you want to.
|Good, you appear to only have 1 copy of Perl installed.
|You appear to have pod2man but not pod2text.
|Creating pod2text for you.
|Good, your version of ExtUtils::MakeMaker is up to date
|This script will pause for a few seconds after each major step,
|so do not worry if it appears to stop for a while.
|If you want it to stop so you can scroll back through the output
|then press Ctrl-S to stop the output and Ctrl-Q to start it again.

So everything looks OK. But then:

|Rebuilding all the Perl RPMs for your version of Perl
|Attempting to build and install perl-IO-stringy-2.108-1
|perl-IO-stringy-2.108-1.src.rpm: No such file or directory
|Missing file /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/noarch/perl-IO-stringy-2.108-1.noarch.rpm.
|Maybe it did not build correctly?

When I check I find:

|# ls -l perl-IO-stringy-2.108-1.src.rpm
|-rw-r--r--    1 mail     mail        70157 Nov  3 21:45 perl-IO-stringy-2.108-1.src.rpm
