Description of problem:
Don't know how many people out there using tetex really know Japanese. I 
am not one for sure. So, why I must install VFlib-devel, and the ones 
requrired by it, to my system?

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Rebuid tetex from src rpm package.
2.Or install tetex-xdvi-1.0.7-15.i386.rpm


Additional info:
Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2001-06-19 05:08:24 EDT
Since the Japanese patches are enabled in the RPM, this is unavoidable.  You 
don't need to install the -devel package in order to install tetex-xdvi.
Comment 2 Rex Dieter 2001-06-20 10:34:37 EDT
I have a comment: I tried to disable japanese support and rebuild the RPMs 
and it failed to build.  I belive one or more patches didn't apply cleanly.  
Try it and see for yourself.

So, I guess this could be considerred a quasi-bug if you ever want to be able 
to build Japanese-less (and VFLib-less) tetex RPMS.
