Description Ville Skyttä 2005-12-04 09:18:52 UTC
The *.la file, apu-1-config, and the pkgconfig file all refer to -lpq -lsqlite3,
but the corresponding postgresql-devel and sqlite-devel dependencies are missing
from apr-util-devel.

On the other hand, now that static libs are not included, maybe these are pure
dependent app bloaters and should be pruned (along with a few other library
dependencies) from *.la, *.pc and *-config instead?

Comment 1 Ville Skyttä 2005-12-04 09:38:46 UTC
add e2fsprogs-devel to the list (for -luuid).

And Requires: pkgconfig would be nice in -devel too as it installs files into
pkgconfig-owned dir.

Comment 2 Ville Skyttä 2005-12-04 09:47:28 UTC
Oops, -luuid/e2fsprogs-devel should be taken care of in apr-devel.

Comment 3 Joe Orton 2005-12-06 15:09:44 UTC
I've trimmed -lpq -lsqlite3 from the exported dependency_libs etc, thanks for

Comment 4 Ville Skyttä 2005-12-06 19:56:10 UTC
Thanks.  While at it, would it be possible to trim the expat-devel dependency
the same way?  db4-devel and openldap-devel apparently cannot because of some
#includes in shipped apr-util-devel headers.  (Reopened for comments.)

Comment 5 Joe Orton 2005-12-07 15:59:28 UTC
No, I think not; the expat dependency is "exported" whereas the others are not.
 (subversion and httpd both expat via the apr-util dependency).  So it's correct
that the other applications pick up an appropriate DT_NEEDED field for libexpat.
