Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 156119
pcre.h installed in wrong location
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:04 EST
The pcre source distribution, by default, installed its header into
$PREFIX/include like almost all other software. The Fedora pcre-devel
RPM place these files in $PREFIX/include/pcre instead.
This location is non-standard, not the default for the upstream
package, and (to my knowlege) not shared by any other platforms that
ship pcre. It forces software to detect and configure Redhat-specific
include paths and/or do brain damage like:
This should be simple to fix.
I notice this is fixed in the current FC4 rawhide package. Thanks! Can the
reporter close the bug? I'll try...
