vpnc misses buildrequirements: gcc
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:53 EST
Description of problem:
Build fails even command:
has been executed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Try to rebuild it in plain system.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start building in absolute minimal system (RHEL5, fc6)
2. yum-builddeb vpnc-......
3. rpmbuild -bb vpnc.spec
build can't find gcc.
/me thinks that this level deps should be elsewhere.
gcc should not be in BuildRequires according to the Fedora packaging guidelines.
I agree with the reasoning 'too often', but that anyway causes broken system.
Those should be rpmbuild pkg dependencies then.
Standard build systems like mock have minimal build groups that already satisfy
this desire. Additionally, you may do it manually by installing rpmdevtools,
which pulls in the minimal requirements as specified by the Fedora Packaging
