Description Steve Grubb 2003-09-08 15:36:47 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i586; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030225

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):

How reproducible:

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.

Additional info:

This issue is also in the RH 8.0 library. All libraries need updating in case a
security issue causes everyone to upgrade packages.

Fixed in net-snmp-5.0.9-2 and later.
