Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 471782
Please build audacity against the system portaudio

Description of problem:
I'm currently working on making PortAudio work with PulseAudio:
It would be nice if I would have just one package to patch, and especially not rebuild all of Audacity just to test my changes. Unfortunately, Audacity is currently built against a private copy of PortAudio.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Check dependencies of Audacity.
Uses private PortAudio.
Uses system PortAudio.
Using private copies of system libraries is also against our packaging guidelines. I understand this was needed when Audacity required PortAudio v19 and the system copy was only v18, but the system copy is also v19 now.

WONTFIX and CANTFIX. We are aware of the "portaudio" package.
The included PortAudio is built with because it is both a snapshot
from svn and patched for Audacity (also to support PortMixer).
Well, OK then. I still think ultimately the changes should get into PortAudio upstream, but I see not much can be done for now.
I will file bugs to merge my PulseAudio (or rather: ALSA without dmix) patches instead (once I tested them to actually work).
I mean "ALSA without mmap" of course, not "without dmix".
