You need to have proper support for xattr on your system. I would
suggest verifying the following:
1) Your kernel is compatible
2) You have the xattr libraries (runtime and devel) installed
3) The filesystem on you're building from can set xattrs
Item 3 tricked me the first time. :)
Fair warning, however: i've found xattr support in pre5 to be sketchy at
