Comment 2 Matt Wilson 2003-09-29 20:33:09 UTC
gtkspell has a DT_NEEDED on libaspell, I prefer those for package flexability if
the aspell ABI changes and we need to do a compat package.

Comment 3 Braden McDaniel 2003-09-29 21:05:01 UTC
I ran into this problem when trying to build gaim. Rebuilding the RPM failed
when it couldn't find the stuff in aspell-devel. gaim has a BuildReq on
gtkspell-devel, and suggested the problem was with the gtkspell-devel package's

It's my understanding the DT_NEEDED will not fix this problem. Is this problem
not worth fixing? If that's the case, what's the point of BuildReq?

Comment 4 Matt Wilson 2003-09-29 21:14:04 UTC
the comment was in regard to a Requires: aspell for the main gtkspell package. 
The Requires: aspell-devel requirement has been added to gtkspell-devel.
