BuildRequires needed in gnome-applets-126.96.36.199-6.src.rpm

hmmm ... a BuildRequires: is needed for apmd to get rid of
the shell script missing dependency detection ...
to the .SPEC file
Subject: ORCprospector 0.01-011017 -- gnome-applets
Executing(%prep): /bin/sh -e /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.11236
You must have apmd installed
The problem is that apmd is only required/present on i386, and rpm doesn't
support per-architecture BuildRequires. So if it required apmd, it wouldn't
build on alpha/ia64/etc. Thus the %prep phase has a manual check for
apmd on i386.
%setup -q -a 5
if ! test -e /usr/lib/libapm.a ; then
echo "You must have apmd installed"
You could imagine hacking rpm to fix this, of course, but can't be fixed in
gnome-applets, and not sure it's worth the complexity/breakage in rpm.
OK by me -- Thanks -- This is interesting so I will 'mention' it to JBJ
