Description Daniel Resare 2001-01-10 06:13:23 EST
As i use a stripped down box for compiling different packages i don't need
an X server on that machine, but i need the X11 libraries and headers
(located in the XFree86-libs and XFree86-devel). So, at least to my eyes,
the fact that XFree86-devel is dependant on XFree86 is a bug, it should
only be dependant on XFree86-libs.
A patch to XFree86-4.01-1 specfile:

--- XFree86.spec.vanilla	Wed Jan 10 12:17:08 2001
+++ XFree86.spec	Wed Jan 10 12:17:26 2001
