Comment 1 Denis Leroy 2007-03-11 18:26:04 EDT
According to Fedora spec guidelines, gcc-c++ is never used a BuildRequires
because it is part of the build roots used by our buildsystem.

Out of curiosity, are you still using libsigc++ (as opposed to the libsigc++20
2.0 API) ? i thought about End-Of-Lifeing that package before, but i'll keep it
around if i know people are still using it...
Comment 2 Ian Pilcher 2007-03-11 18:49:21 EDT
Whoops!  Didn't realize that.

I use libsigc++ for efax-gtk (not in Extras).  AFAIK, it doesn't support 2.0 yet.

Didn't know about efax-gtk. You should contribute it to Extras!
