Description Nalin Dahyabhai 2005-04-05 22:52:39 UTC
Description of problem:
Development packages which provide .pc files often require .pc files (and
headers, and libraries) provided by other development packages.  Fedora Core's
pkgconfig package (at least as of 1:0.15.0-6) can be used to query this
information.  It would be useful if the RPM configuration recorded this
dependency information in packages so that it could be tracked.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Additional info:
This came up on fedora-maintainers.  Added here in part for tracking.

Scripts added tp rpm-4_4 CVS. No plumbing yet, judging from past experience, I've got 2-3 years to wire 
up the lash. ;-(
