Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 433083
g-wrap should use system libffi
Last modified: 2008-12-27 22:26:22 EST
Description of problem:
libffi was recently accepted into Fedora. I've pushed it into rawhide and F-8.
g-wrap should build against this version of libffi.
Simply att `pkgconfig libffi --cflags` to the CFLAGS definition and it should
work (I tried this).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.

libffi provides libffi.so.5, whereas at least one dependent of g-wrap, guile-gnome-platform, depends on the libffi.so.4 currently shipped with g-wrap.
Xavier has not replied to this bug, so it seems that the safe option would be to push a new g-wrap package that uses the system libffi to Rawhide, rebuild guile-gnome-platform against it, and then we can consider pushing it back to F-10 if there is no problem.
Updated g-wrap and guile-gnome-platform built for Rawhide.
