to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
Package 'pthread', required by 'OpenIPMIpthread', not found
Please remove bogus pthread from Requires:
and add -pthread to Cflags:

Thank you for the bug report. At the moment, the Fedora developers are
busy fixing other issues and may not have time to work on this one. The
best way to make sure your problem will get looked on is to report it to
the authors of the program. Most upstream authors use a bug tracking system
like bugzilla, and more people who know the code will be looking at the
bug report there.

before filing it.

I have the exact same Problem on RHEL 5.5
rpm -q OpenIPMI-libs
Technical note added. If any revisions are required, please edit the "Technical Notes" field
accordingly. All revisions will be proofread by the Engineering Content Services team.
The pkgconfig script contained incorrect link options. This could have resulted in linking errors when compiling software that used the OpenIPMI libraries. This update fixes the pkgconfig script and software correctly links to the OpenIPMI libraries.
