Description of problem:
pkgconfig for libvirt-sandbox has unresolved requirement on 'sandbox-2.0'
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Present in latest tree: http://libvirt.org/git/?p=libvirt-sandbox.git;a=tree;h=7be56b6b0c86eae2d53135d474bafc8016a5fe96;hb=67316356806a446903630f284438420d94533bc3
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run `pkg-config --cflags libvirt-sandbox-1.0`
Package sandbox-2.0 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `sandbox-2.0.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
Package 'sandbox-2.0', required by 'libvirt-sandbox-1.0', not found
Correct compiler flags for the libvirt-sandbox package.
Removing this requirement from the package config seems to work and I'm able to compile and link against libvirt-sandbox. I asked in the #virt IRC channel on oftc and a point was raised that this might be a mistake, so I've included a trivial patch.
Yeah not sure what the 'sandbox-2.0' dep is about, so the patch makes sense to me. danpb, any comments?
Yep that dep looks bogus to me.
I sent Gary's patch upstream:

This message is a reminder that Fedora 23 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 23. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version'
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 23 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 23 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2016-12-20. Fedora 23 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
