commit b8c28ac31ee731341fbe216a228034d0f1d0b7d0 Author: Simon McVittie <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: Sun Aug 22 13:56:21 2021 +0100 d/rules: Specify canonical path to mke2fs If nbdkit is built on a merged-/usr system where both /usr/sbin/mke2fs and /sbin/mke2fs exist, it will hard-code the former into its executable, resulting in an binary package that will not work correctly when used on non-merged-/usr systems. Forcing the canonical path will make it work on any combination of merged-/usr and non-merged-/usr build and runtime systems. Alternatively, if mke2fs is moved to /usr/sbin with a compatibility symlink /sbin/mke2fs -> /usr/sbin/mke2fs as part of a "symlink farm" strategy, nbdkit would record the /usr/sbin/mke2fs path, resulting in binaries that would not interoperate with a version of mke2fs that has not undergone that transition. This also brings nbdkit closer to a reproducible build (Policy §4.15). Signed-off-by: Simon McVittie <email@example.com>
