Just so the problem is 100% documented directly in bugzilla, here is a cut
and paste of the mail message linked to above:

Hi!


I wanted to update gajim in Fedora Extras but libXScrnSaver-devel has broken
dependencies. `pkg-config --libs xscrnsaver' command gives this output:

Package x11 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `x11.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
Package 'x11', required by 'XScrnSaver', not found


Before reporting this in Bugzilla I wanted to ask about one question.
/usr/lib/pkgconfig/xscrnsaver.pc file contains this line:

Requires.private: x11 xext


If I understand pkg-config's manpage correctly, “Requires.private” and
“Libs.private” are only needed in the case of static linking. Am I right? If
yes, maybe it would be better to comment this line out to not to add unnecessary
dependency bloat? (X.org X11 libs in Rawhide do not provide static libs.) Here's
the proposal patch → http://wiki.fedora.pl/gajownik/xorg/libXScrnSaver-private.patch

Comments?

BTW Merry Christmas!
