Description Kevin Kofler 2008-03-29 03:10:13 UTC
Description of problem:
libidn.pc says libidn.so is in /usr/lib(64) when it is actually in /lib(64) 
(see bug 283651). The -devel symlink could be in /usr/lib(64) just fine 
without breaking apps in /bin. Alternatively, the .pc file ought to be fixed.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try building kdenetwork against libidn.
Actual results:
/builddir/build/BUILD/kdenetwork-4.0.3/kopete/protocols: Disabled Jabber 
because libidn-devel was not found (bug 439465).

Expected results:
libidn found.

Additional info:
I'm adding a quick workaround to kdenetwork for now, but this should be fixed 
ASAP as it's likely to also affect other packages.

Comment 1 Kevin Kofler 2008-03-29 03:30:21 UTC
My first analysis was incorrect: the problem is the opposite of how I described 
it: the symlink is already in /usr/lib(64), however pkgconfig has its libdir 
set to /lib(64). cmake uses that libdir as the place to find the -devel symlink 
in. This probably won't affect packages using something else 
because /usr/lib(64) is in the default linker search path, however cmake wants 
to find the actual file using its own search algorithm, and kdenetwork's 
FindIDN.cmake explicitly disables the fallback paths.

FYI, I applied this patch to kdenetwork for now:

Comment 3 Joe Orton 2008-03-31 10:25:38 UTC
Fixed in libidn-0.6.14-7.
