Description Ville Skyttä 2008-03-19 17:13:01 EDT
Changes in aalib 1.4.0-0.14.rc5 have broken aalib-config --libs; it now returns
a whole slew of -lfoo things for which the devel package lacks foo-devel
dependencies for.  This will break builds of dependent packages as can be
witnessed eg. in

$ aalib-config --libs
-laa -lm -lX11 -lgpm -lslang -lncurses

One "fix" would be to add dependencies to libX11-devel, gpm-devel, slang-devel
and ncurses-devel to aalib-devel, but that seems very much like linkage bloat -
I think it'd be fine if "aalib-config --libs" would just output "-laa" and
nothing else as no static libs are shipped.  No need to add any new dependencies
to aalib-devel that way.

1.4.0-0.13.rc5 did not have this problem.  Setting high priority and severity
because this is currently blocking a xine-lib security update for Rawhide.

aalib-config is now patched to only have the -laa.
