The current lua package now uses the pkgconfig .pc file instead of the no longer
included lua-config script. A requirement on pkgconfig is now needed, but it
might then be a good time to split lua and lua-devel into two since it would
currently mean adding a development type of requirement to a main package.
I've made this block the FE-BuildReq bug since I discovered this problem when
looking at the lighttpd build logs, which indicated a failure because of
pkgconfig not being installed when trying to enable lua support.
Could you provide some more details? maybe a build log etc?
If you go here:
lua builds without the need for pkg-config. At no time during the build is
Cancel that. I just clicked to what you meant.
Will push a rebuild tonight.
Fixed in lua-5.1-4.
But what about the idea of splitting off a real -devel sub-package? When there
were no dependencies and only a static library, it didn't make much sense, but
now I really think it does.
OK, I have split it out and it should be in the repos in the next push. Thanks!
