mod_ssl missing dependency on 'make'
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:33:25 EDT
mod_ssl includes several Makefiles, to automate the process of
public/private key pairs. However, it has no dependency on 'make', so
there are no direct guarantees that make will be installed, and that these
Makefiles can be used.
noted on (ia64 and i386) mod_ssl-2.8.1-5:
are the makefiles being used automatically, ie. are they a "required" component
of making mod_ssl run?
one might not add a requirement from Web Server install class to Software
Development packages. (personally I don't have a problem with it though :-)
When mod_ssl generates dummy keys and certs in %post, it does so by calling
openssl directly instead of going through a Makefile. As make does not itself
pull in other packages, it should be safe to add as a requirement in mod_ssl
fix verified, closing to cleanup bug status.
