Comment 1 Mike A. Harris 2002-05-17 20:18:39 EDT
Asked upstream about this.  Runtime packages shouldn't require files
in /usr/include.  Not sure what the best solution would be.  My solution
will probably to remove xf86cfg.
Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2002-05-30 19:35:24 EDT
I've discussed it upstream and they provided a few obscure suggestions.
I'm not really comfortable with mucking around with their suggestions
however.  This is a problem with xf86cfg itself IMHO, which we provide
for usage - but do not officially support.

A hack workaround would be adding an explicit dependancy on XFree86-devel
to the xf86cfg package.  While it correctly solves the aparent problem,
it is very ugly, and not something I consider correct to do.  The real
correct thing to do is to fix the underlying problem, but that is beyond
the scope of what I'm prepared to do for a package which we do not
officially support.

I'm closing as WONTFIX for now, but if it causes QA a problem, or any
other problems, the better solution would be to just not ship xf86cfg
anymore - which I've been asked by Preston to do anyway.  ;o)
