Not sure what yor are talking about there...

My response wasn't supposed to be weird or a wise crack or etc.
When you said `>> > Are you sure that you build that from sources?'

I thought you must be asking if I had built it like 
make install

Where I might have used some tricky variables or whatever.

I was simply saying I built it with rpmbuild -ba .spec from the 
*.src.file so using whatever is in .spec.

Probably should have used the word `rebuilt'

It just appears like:
Requires: coreutils, util-linux, libc5, bacula-fd
Any way removing it allows the packages produced to install ok.

I don't really know how to use it yet so not really sure its working.

There is one thing else that strikes me as wrong or odd.

rpmbuild -ba .spec built these:
 bacula-client-1.34.6-1.i386.rpm     bacula-mysql-1.34.6-1.i386.rpm
 bacula-debuginfo-1.34.6-1.i386.rpm  bacula-rescue-1.34.6-1.i386.rpm
 bacula-gconsole-1.34.6-1.i386.rpm   bacula-updatedb-1.34.6-1.i386.rpm

Subtracting the debug pkg.  And all but one installs with no problems.
produces this error:

 rpm -Uvh bacula-client-1.34.6-1.i38
 error: Failed dependencies:
        bacula-client conflicts with bacula-mysql-1.34.6-1

I don't get that, but maybe its because I don't understand how to use
it yet.  Maybe the client package is meant to be installed elsewhere.
