Description david-b 1999-05-10 16:53:42 UTC
libIDL is an independently distributable component, but
it's currently packaged _incorrectly_ with ORBit.

REPEAT BY:  trying to compile Mozilla M5 on a generic
RedHat 6.0 distribution.

SYMPTOM:  Can't find the script identified above, so
programs dependent on it can't link correctly.

WORKAROUND:  Get the source RPM for ORBit.  Configure
the "libIDL" package with "--prefix=/usr".  Copy the
resulting libIDL-config script into /usr/bin.

I find this marking of this a low priority to be somewhat of a
problem. Mozilla is the next generation of web browsers to run on

Thanks for the work around but it strikes me that libIDL should be a
separate package required by ORBit.
