Description Stig Hackvan 2004-03-31 17:49:15 EST
.src.rpms for many of the system-config-* packages have bogus and
unnecessary build-dependencies because of symlinks to automake helper

Please fix this.

I don't have a .spec file workaround for config-switch-mail because
the offending gunk is in system-switch-mail-0.5.24/po/Makefile:

MKINSTALLDIRS = /usr/share/automake-1.6/mkinstalldirs
mkinstalldirs = $(SHELL) `case "$(MKINSTALLDIRS)" in /*) echo
"$(MKINSTALLDIRS)" ;; *) echo "$(top_builddir)/$(MKINSTALLDIRS)" ;; esac`
