Description of problem:
When rebuilding a package that depends on SDL in EPEL (means it builds against RHEL 6.7, not CentOS or other clone), I'm getting "undefined reference to `_XGetRequest'" error. Seems bug 1205603 wasn't properly fixed.

Comment 2 Tuomo Soini 2015-08-05 06:08:36 EDT
Correct fix for SDL is in bug #782251
Comment 3 Dan Astoorian 2015-09-04 10:35:53 EDT
This problem also affects applications which have already been built if they are linked against libSDL but not libX11; e.g., running "gegl" reports:

** Message: Module '/usr/lib64/gegl-0.1/display.so' load error: /usr/lib64/libSDL-1.2.so.0: undefined symbol: _XGetRequest

** (gegl:4594): WARNING **: Failed to set operation type gegl:display, using a passthrough op instead

and fails to display.

The problem appeared between SDL-1.2.14-3 and SDL-1.2.14-5, and was not fixed in SDL-1.2.14-6; downgrading to SDL-1.2.14-3 fixes the symptoms.

In case this is helpful for some customers, setting 
in the environment (for 64-bit executables) appears to work around the problem for at least some applications.

A fix for this is now been released in in 6.7 Z-stream and will automatically be pulled into 6.8.
