Description of problem:

libX11.a missing from libX11-devel rpm?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -ql libX11-devel |grep libX11
Actual results:


Expected results:

Expect to see libX11.a also listed there.

Additional info:

libX11.a exists on FC3 - so I'm assuming this is a package error on FC5T2[and
not an intentional removal]. I don't have any breakage releated to this issue.
Its just something I noticed.
