I see two files in /etc/rpm:
/etc/rpm/macros.perl:%global __perl_provides /usr/lib/rpm/perl.prov

No files in /usr/lib/rpm.

The macros.perl file comes from perl-macros-5.16.3-283.el7.x86_64. If I
`echo %__perl_provides` in the %setup section, it prints
/usr/lib/rpm/perl.perl518-prov, so it looks like the right setup is
being picked up.

I've uninstall perl-macros and started the build to see if that helps at

Thank you.
