Description Ville Skyttä 2005-12-04 04:18:52 EST
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 04:38:46 EST
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 04:47:28 EST
Oops, -luuid/e2fsprogs-devel should be taken care of in apr-devel.
Comment 3 Joe Orton 2005-12-06 10:09:44 EST
I've trimmed -lpq -lsqlite3 from the exported dependency_libs etc, thanks for
Comment 4 Ville Skyttä 2005-12-06 14:56:10 EST
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 10:59:28 EST
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.
