Package: mapserver
Version: 4.6.2-1
Severity: serious

The latest version of mapserver has failed to build on alpha with the
following error:

touch mapscriptvars
touch: cannot touch 
apscriptvars': Permission denied
make[1]: *** [mapscriptvars] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory /build/buildd/mapserver-4.6.2'
make: *** [build-arch-stamp] Error 2

A full build log is available at

This failure occurs because the alpha autobuilder uses sudo instead of
fakeroot for building, and mapserver does not have a clean separation
between its "clean" and "build" targets.  The "clean" target is specified as
running under rootcmd; you should therefore *not* be creating files in
"clean".  (That, and creating files in "clean" is somewhat backwards...)

Steve Langasek                   Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS
Debian Developer                   to set it on, and I can move the world.
