Description of problem:
The file /usr/lib64/pkgconfig/freetype2.pc
has the line
I believe the version number should be 2.3.4, the same as the rpm package version number.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. View the file /usr/lib64/pkgconfig/freetype2.pc
9.15.3 is what gets passed to libtool as -version-info
It is certainly surprising to see it show up in the pc file, but I am not sure
that the semantics of the Version field are well-defined enough to declare this
In any case, this needs to be brought up on the upstream mailing list, we can't
deviate from the pc file that is shipped upstream, that is only leading to pain
The pkg-config manual says:
This should be the most-specific-possible package version
That looks well-defined to me.
What's the reference for the upstream bug report?
Yeah, freetype has three different versions:
- package version
- libtool version
- so version
