Description of problem:
According to current packaging guidelines all -devel packages which include pkgconfig's .pc files must have
libpng for FC5 does not have it.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
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.
pkgconfig should get pulled as build dependency and build should succeed.
FWIW, this seems already fixed in FC6.
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.
Done in libpng-1.2.8-3.fc5 ... sorry about the delay, but there's been no other reason to turn the package.
