Description of problem:
The installed library libelf.so.1 is missing a symlink which allows
you to compile new programs which link against it.
In particular, if I compile a program foo.c, the following will fail:
gcc foo.c -lelf
A workaround can be done as follows:
ln -s libelf.so.1 libelf.so
...but it would be much nicer if the RPM for this installed properly
in the first place. :-)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora Core 2
2. Try to compile any program that links to libelf with -lelf
Actual Results: Compile fails due to missing library.
Expected Results: Compile should work.
The symlink is in the elfutils-libelf-devel-0.96-1 package.
