R12: Sometimes cloning doesn’t remove all source references

I’m in the process of applying the latest round of security patches to our environment.   While patching TEST (I’ve already applied it to a sandbox and DEV environment), I hit the following error:

OPatch found the word "error" in stderr, please look into it.
You may have to run the make again.
Stderr Output (from /var/TEST/apps/tech_st/10.1.2/.patch_storage/12828135/make_local.stderr):
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find –ljava
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[1]: *** [/u01/TEST/apps/tech_st/10.1.2/sysman/lib/] Error 1
make: *** [libnmemso] Error 2

I've hit a similar issue in the past, documented in post

The following line was still pointing to the source system:


I changed it to TEST, reran the patch and it completed successfully.   Just a reminder that cloning doesn’t update all the necessary files.
