Description Steve Chaplin 2007-10-29 00:31:34 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv: Gecko/20070718 Fedora/ Firefox/

Description of problem:
The file /usr/lib64/pkgconfig/freetype2.pc
has the line
"Version: 9.15.3"

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):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. View the file /usr/lib64/pkgconfig/freetype2.pc

Actual Results:

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
a bug. 
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
and confusion.
Comment 2 Steve Chaplin 2007-11-05 19:54:58 EST
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?
Comment 3 Behdad Esfahbod 2007-11-05 22:23:39 EST
Yeah, freetype has three different versions:

  - package version
  - libtool version
  - so version

go figure...
