[CELT-dev] trouble building celt on Fedora

Hi All,

I'm looking to package up celt for inclusion in Fedora as the next
stable release of ekiga/opal will have support for it. I've run into
two issues in compiling it into a rpm. The first is a show stopper,
then second one not so much of an issue but thought I'd report it for

The first issue is due to the celtdec and celtenc explicitly define
rpath. I get the following errors when building the packages:
celt.x86_64: E: binary-or-shlib-defines-rpath /usr/bin/celtdec ['/usr/lib64']
celt.x86_64: E: binary-or-shlib-defines-rpath /usr/bin/celtenc ['/usr/lib64']

* WARNING: 'check-rpaths' detected a broken RPATH and will cause 'rpmbuild'
*          to fail. To ignore these errors, you can set the '$QA_RPATHS'
*          environment variable which is a bitmask allowing the values
*          below. The current value of QA_RPATHS is 0x0000.
*    0x0001 ... standard RPATHs (e.g. /usr/lib); such RPATHs are a minor
*               issue but are introducing redundant searchpaths without
*               providing a benefit. They can also cause errors in multilib
*               environments.
*    0x0002 ... invalid RPATHs; these are RPATHs which are neither absolute
*               nor relative filenames and can therefore be a SECURITY risk
*    0x0004 ... insecure RPATHs; these are relative RPATHs which are a
*               SECURITY risk
*    0x0008 ... the special '$ORIGIN' RPATHs are appearing after other
*               RPATHs; this is just a minor issue but usually unwanted
*    0x0010 ... the RPATH is empty; there is no reason for such RPATHs
*               and they cause unneeded work while loading libraries
*    0x0020 ... an RPATH references '..' of an absolute path; this will break
*               the functionality when the path before '..' is a symlink
* Examples:
* - to ignore standard and empty RPATHs, execute 'rpmbuild' like
*   $ QA_RPATHS=$[ 0x0001|0x0010 ] rpmbuild my-package.src.rpm
* - to check existing files, set $RPM_BUILD_ROOT and execute check-rpaths like
*   $ RPM_BUILD_ROOT=<top-dir> /usr/lib/rpm/check-rpaths
ERROR   0001: file '/usr/bin/celtenc' contains a standard rpath
'/usr/lib64' in [/usr/lib64]
ERROR   0001: file '/usr/bin/celtdec' contains a standard rpath
'/usr/lib64' in [/usr/lib64]

The other issue I have (which I work around with the --disable-oggtest
configure option) is that the test app doesn't build.
