Richard: Ihat sounds good. But I had tried dropping the .rpm suffix
earlier, with no luck. Since I now have a rather cumbersome workaround
I'm unlikely to try much else over the next few days, but thanks anyway.
Then I might just create the SRPMS and try letting mock --chain do all
the RPM building. Or maybe a fix will be revealed :-)
My last post had a typo. /var has 50 (not 500) GB, of which 11 were
available before the mock --chain build; now 7.9 GB. There are yum/dnf
caches going back to F23, so a clearout is probably due.
