hello linuxfromscratchers,

i'm trying to build rpm 4.0.4 (yes, i know, i know...) but without
./configure ends with the following error message:

configuring in db3
running /bin/sh ./configure  --cache-file=.././config.cache --srcdir=.
configure: error: cannot find sources in .
make: *** No rule to make target `listobjs'.  Stop.
configure: error: ./configure failed for db3

and i can't understand what's wrong. ls -l in db3 gives:

-rw-r--r--    1 root     root            0 Aug  9 01:18 Makefile
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root            0 Aug  7 21:24 Makefile.orig
-rwxr-xr-x    1 2161     2161         1089 Jul 27  2001 configure
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root            0 Aug  9 01:18 db.h
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root            0 Aug  7 21:24 db.h.orig
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root            0 Aug  9 01:18 db3lobjs

which is somewhat funny, isn't it? 

has anyone built rpm 4.0.4 from sources? i would like to have rpm to
checkinstall my packages.

thank you very much as always,
