Description Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams 2009-02-23 19:42:55 EST
libxml2.i386 0:2.7.3-1.fc11

Line 422 of /usr/include/libxml2/libxml/xmlversion.h checks to see if ATTRIBUTE_PRINTF is not defined. If it is then it falls through to line 429, where it promptly proceeds to redefine it. This causes an issue when a wxGTK app is built since wxGTK defines its own ATTRIBUTE_PRINTF. One example of such an app is xmlcopyeditor, which I am trying to build for Rawhide.

Patch to remove excess ATTRIBUTE_PRINTF definitions

I also found another definition after. This patch should fix this issue.
