Care to elaborate why exactly WONTFIX ?
Comment 2 Matthias Clasen 2005-03-09 23:00:33 EST
Because cluttering the spec files with BuildRequires to protect
against ancient tools is not a particularly effective use of my time.
Fedora SRPM don't have to be buildable on every rpm-based system on
the world, and there has not been a single FC release with pkgconfig <
Comment 3 Yanko Kaneti 2005-03-09 23:57:31 EST
The BuildRequire is already there, it just has the incorrect version.
Changing a number would hardly culutter anything.
