Description of problem:
One more report! 
With the new modular X packages the Xft is not provided and the configure 
script for kdegraphics package does not use pkg-config and therefor decides 
to not to build kpdf. 
I don't have a very elegant way of solving this but if I put the attach 
patch after the call to Makefile.cvs block than configure runs twice and 
picks up the righ dependence second time around. 

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to build kdegraphics package under current rawhide

Will this be solved anytime soon?  I really miss kpdf... 
Comment 3 Ngo Than 2005-12-12 06:08:26 EST
it's now fixed in 3.5.0-2. Many thanks for your report,

It appears to be broken again in kdegraphics-3.5.1-1 -- at least, kpdf isn't
installed since I did that update, although its documentation is still there.
Apologies for crying wolf if it's actually a different underlying cause this time.

It seems to be the same problem. Old patch still works.

One more thing, last time I did this the build complained that
qt support for poppler was not there and kpdf info would not be
build. I took the rawhide poppler rpm and rebuilt it and somehow
qt support was automatically in there. I don't know how they could
not have had that in the rawhide rpms! Anyway, I had filed a bug
report under poppler but did not here back!

i will take a look here
Comment 7 Mary Ellen Foster 2006-02-06 05:19:26 EST
NB: kdegraphics-3.5.1-0.1.fc4 on FC4 *does* still have kpdf in it; this seems to
be a Rawhide-only issue.
Comment 8 Ngo Than 2006-02-16 10:27:57 EST
it's now fixed in kdegraphics-3.5.1-3, which will be available in rawhide soon.
Many thanks for your report.
