Hi all,

I found some strange build behaviour (on both base-3.14.12.3 using 64 bit CentOs 5.9
and base-3.14.9 using 32 bit CentOs 5.4). If there is a db directory in top's parent
directory that contains a file with the same name as I'm trying to install into
the top's db directory, then the install does not happen.

The following demonstrates this:

cd /tmp
mkdir -p above_top/top
cd above_top/top
makeBaseApp.pl -t ioc Weird
cd WeirdApp/Db/
vi Makefile            # uncomment the DB += xxx.db line
touch xxx.db
cd ../..               # back to top
make
ls -l db               # the xxx.db file installed as expected - so far so good.
make clean uninstall

# and the weirdness starts here:
#
mkdir ../db
touch ../db/xxx.db
make
ls -l                  # no db diretory in top, and no installed xxx.db file.


Is this an intended feature, and if so what is the rationale?

Regards
