Description of problem:
According to current packaging guidelines all -devel packages which include pkgconfig's .pc files must have
Requires: pkgconfig
libpng for FC5 does not have it.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Prepare a package that Requires: libpng-devel and uses pkgconfig to find out CFLAGS and LDFLAGS
2. Rebuild that package in mock.

Actual Results:
Build fails.

Expected Results:
pkgconfig should get pulled as build dependency and build should succeed.

FWIW, this seems already fixed in FC6.
Comment 2 Dominik 'Rathann' Mierzejewski 2006-12-04 21:04:30 EST
I know. The bug is filled against FC5. I tried to build tachyon with unmodified
devel/FC6 spec and found that I couldn't without adding a workaround.
Comment 3 Tom Lane 2007-05-24 01:38:53 EDT
Done in libpng-1.2.8-3.fc5 ... sorry about the delay, but there's been no other reason to turn the package.
