Description of problem:
While trying to compile php 4.3.2, it would fail in configure when testing the
snmp library. This was entered in bugzilla #103388 against php. The problem is
php's configure tests the static snmp library which requires the libelf.a
library. The static libelf library is kept in libelf-devel. Therefore, anyone
that has netsnmp-devel installed also must have libelf-devel installed or static
compilations may fail.
The maintainer of php said I should open this bug report so that net-snmp-devel
can get the libelf-devel requirement added to the spec file.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -ivh php-4.3.2-2.src.rpm
2. rpmbuild -bb /usr/src/redhat/SPEC/php.spec
Actual Results: The rpm build fails in sanity check of snmp.
Expected Results: Php successfully compiled.
This issue is also in the RH 8.0 library. All libraries need updating in case a
security issue causes everyone to upgrade packages.
This bug is still present in Fedora Core Beta 2.
Fixed in net-snmp-5.0.9-2 and later.
Read ya, Phil
