postgresql-devel: remove dependency on 'postgresql'
Last modified: 2015-10-16 10:06:58 EDT
One issue I found while I was trying to resolve bug 1190346 is that
'postgresql-devel' requires 'postgresql' package (which happens to be multilib
unclean at this moment).
I haven't found the reason for this requirement, one might be that that
'/usr/bin/pg_config' is packaged in 'postgresql'. But because '*-devel' always
requires '*-libs', we could probably put 'pg_config' into 'postgresql-libs'.
Removing this binary from 'postgresql' would not hurt because 'postgresql'
After discussion with Honza, we decided to move the 'pg_config' from
postgresql to postgresql-devel (not into postgresql-libs). This is to minimize
postgreqsl-libs payload which is definitely desired.
