Description Rex Dieter 2005-10-06 16:10:47 EDT
pretty much the same arguments used in bug #170032.

Please remove all %{_libdir}/lib*.la files and static libs from the -devel
package.  This will reduce libtool/library bloat.

Further, it will (mostly) solve the problem of needing to add
extreneous Requires: libjpeg-devel to other (-devel) packages built against
libjpeg-devel (to account for the references to /usr/lib/libjpeg.la in their own
.la files).

(mostly Library) packages with .la files of their own that
BuildRequires: libjpeg-devel
will need to be rebuilt after this modification.

If you insist in still including the .la files (and static libraries), please
package them separately into something like libjpeg-static (or
libjpeg-devel-static), so it would be possible to omit this extra crud in other
rpms that
BuildRequires: libjpeg-devel
BuildConflicts: libjpeg-static
