Description of problem:
If libgcrypt-devel isn't installed when building the gaim rpm the resulting gaim package will end up without SSL support and without e.g. msn capabilities. It would IMHO be better if there was an error at build time.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -e libgrypt-devel
2. rpmbuild --rebuild gaim-1.2.1-1.fc3.src.rpm
Actual Results: The rpm is built, but it's incomplete
Expected Results: I would prefer if I got a failure that libgcrypt-devel was missing
Gaim's dependency is on gnutls-devel. Gaim does not use libgcrypt directly. I
think the bug here is actually a bug in the gnutls packaging - gnutls-devel
should Require: libgcrypt-devel.
FC4 gnutls already does that. But I thought I changed gaim-1.2.1 packages to
use mozilla-nss instead? In any case it is wrong to add this BuildRequires to gaim.
