The appdata files only get generated/installed when built against
kf5-5.25.0, which is currently still in -testing for f23/f24/f25 (waiting
for f25 alpha freeze to lift)

I'm trying to build a new package. It completed with no issues on F26
(rawhide) and F24. However, the build keeps failing on F25????
Here is the build link which is reporting the error? Why would this fail
only on F25? Doesn't make much sense.
Basically for some reason, the make install is working fine and installing
the file on F24 and rawhide, but isn't working on F25.

Yes, I saw that... but I if you look at the rawhide and F24 build, it is
installed fine. It also installed fine on copr. It's
a bit bizarre if you ask me. If it is working on the release before and
the release after F25 - seems to me that points to
some peculiarly with F25.
I checked some other builds that used appdata, and they included
gettext... so I included that, plus I found a post
that suggested dconf-devel and dconf-editor.... so I included those
and still same result. I'm stumped.
