RPM build errors:
    Symlink points to BuildRoot: /usr/local/bin/bzcmp -> /home/rpmuser/rpmbuild/BUILDROOT/bzip2-1.0.6-6.i386/usr/local/bin/bzdiff

    Symlink points to BuildRoot: /usr/local/bin/bzless -> /home/rpmuser/rpmbuild/BUILDROOT/bzip2-1.0.6-6.i386/usr/local/bin/bzmore

It seams it is creating sybilic links in BUILDROOT.
I have seen similar threads before.But i am still not getting how to solve this problem. perhaps i need to a add some changes to install section of my spec file.
install section sample of my bzip2.spec file is as follows



any help will be usefull Smilie
