Additional info:
Comment 1 Jakub Jelinek 2008-11-01 03:38:43 EDT
gcc requires glibc-devel, which requires glibc-headers.  Why is a direct dependency as opposed to indirect one needed?
Comment 2 Horst H. von Brand 2008-11-01 09:37:08 EDT
Not needed, really. This was reported to me by a (mostly clueless user).

Sorry for the noise. Close?
