Various hard coded dependancies on XFree86 should not be present

There are hard coded dependancies on some XFree86 subpackages
whi need to be fixed before xorg-x11 can be enabled in the
The following is found in the spec file:
Requires: XFree86, perl
I'm not sure why that XFree86 requires is there, can you comment
BuildRequires: XFree86-Xvfb, mozilla, XFree86-devel, XFree86-libs, bzip2
XFree86-Xvfb? What is that used for? ;o) Please remove that dep
if possible, unless there is really a need for it. I can make
xorg-x11 have a virtual provide for it if it is indeed required
XFree86-libs needs to be removed. It is unnecessary as a
BuildRequires because XFree86-devel requires XFree86-libs already
and will do the right thing.
The XFree86-devel BuildRequires is ok to keep for now, as we're
not going to solve that problem just yet. That will get solved
in the future.
I have added:
to the xorg-x11-Xvfb subpackage, and also to our XFree86 4.3.0
packaging which will be in all future OS updates. If openoffice
still has a dependancy on the Xvfb server, can you please change
it to use a virtual BuildRequires: Xvfb instead so that it is
Oops, I was looking at the 'openoffice' in cvs rather than the
'openoffice.org'. The Xvfb requirement isn't there, so scratch
All of the rest of the above issues are fixed in 1.1.0-32, which
I'm currently building in dist-fc2

The openoffice.org build I started failed. The build log is over
26Mb in size, and it's beyond my comprehension to investigate
the problem without significant time sink, so this will have to
be fixed by the package owner most likely.
Mike, build failed because I hadn't gotten around to fixing it this
weekend. New OOo is building in dist-fc2 and should contain your
fixes. It is looking like it will complete.
This is fixed right? reopen if not.
Yep, fixed in rawhide, thanks warren.
