CentOS Linux 8 ended its life on December 31, 2021 and, therefore, is no longer supported.

Sorry if I'm misunderstanding something, but are you guys not working on CentOS Stream anymore? I thought you were. This problem is still present in Stream - that's where I'm encountering it.

It's caused simply by the following packages not being available when libcgroup is built - byacc, flex, pam-devel. Apparently the SRPM won't build the libcgroup-devel package when they are not present. Fix that, and you fix this problem.

It's not a problem with libcgroup, and it's not really a problem with the SRPM. It's a build-environment problem. If there's a better place I can open a ticket to get this fixed, please let me know.
