Description Paul Howarth 2005-10-19 10:10:17 EDT
Description of problem:

/usr/include/ftlib.h includes <zlib.h>, a file from zlib-devel

Without the dependency on zlib-devel, any package requiring flow-tools-devel and
including ftlib.h will not build on a system that does not have zlib-devel
installed. That would include any package being built on the Fedora Extras
buildsystem that did not itself require zlib-devel.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Try using mock to build perl-Cflow (Bug 170511)
Actual results:
Build fails due to missing zlib.h

Expected results:
Build succeeds
Comment 1 Paul P Komkoff Jr 2005-10-19 17:17:36 EDT
I've changed all my local files, but either cvs or my internet appears to be
dead so - sorry for delay, I'm going to sleep now, hope simple "make tag" will
succeed tomorrow.
Comment 2 Paul P Komkoff Jr 2005-10-20 15:14:14 EDT
I've updated it and built, please confirm that everything is working now (as of
Release: 4)
Comment 3 Paul Howarth 2005-10-21 13:07:26 EDT
perl-Cflow now builds successfully in mock without the workaround of adding BR:
zlib-devel in its own spec file, so I'm now happy and will close the bug.
