Well, it's difficult to give you a solution without knowing the actual cause of the issue. Can you use mock to try and build the package please? That way you get a detailed build log.

Since you mention that make is trying to install quazip, we have a strict policy of not permitting bundled libraries in packages. Quazip is already in the fedora repositories. You must patch this package's build system to use quazip from fedora, and not the copy it bundles.

I remember having to do the same. It was, in-fact, again quazip that was bundled.

Hi all.

I talked with main developer and told me that quazip is an extra package included in Tupi, so, he made changes to use the quazip from the system.
