Description of problem:
The tetex-1.0.7-38.2.src.rpm will not build on a system which does not have
graphical interface installed.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.rpm --rebuild tetex-1.0.7-38.2.src.rpm

Actual Results:  # rpm --rebuild tetex-1.0.7-38.2.src.rpm
error: failed build dependencies:
        XFree86-devel   is needed by tetex-1.0.7-38.2
        VFlib2-devel   is needed by tetex-1.0.7-38.2
        Xaw3d-devel   is needed by tetex-1.0.7-38.2

Expected Results:  Should build binary RPMS packages.

Additional info:

On the installation of RHL v7.2 I opted for Everything, then manually removed
all XFree86-*, kde* and gnome* packages.  (I wanted an installation with all
features, but have no need for any graphical user interface.)  The packages
finally installed are the result of the RedHat installer resolving dependencies.
 Thus the tetex-* packages were judged not to require graphics, the the build of
the SRPMS does require them.
Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2002-02-01 10:00:46 EST
Tetex contains things like xdvi, which require X libs to be present.

Note that it's the -devel packages that are required, the libraries and
headers and so on.

A development machine needs development packages.
