Description of problem:
The vim-6.0-7.13.src.rpm will not build binary packages in an environment in
which graphical interfaces are not installed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.rpm --rebuild vim-6.0-7.13.src.rpm
Actual Results: # rpm --rebuild vim-6.0-7.13.src.rpm
error: failed build dependencies:
gtk+-devel is needed by vim-6.0-7.13
Expected Results: Should detect lack of graphical environment and skip building
the graphical version of vim ("gvim"). The other binary packages (containing
text versions of vim) should be built correctly.
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.
The vim-6.0-7.13.src.rpm SRPMS wants to build 4 binary packages (vim-common,
vim-minimal, vim-enhanced, vim-X11). Of these 4, the last is clearly
inappropriate for my system, but the first 3 binaries should build without error.
I've added a switch to the latest vim specfile to disable building of gvim.
But we can't use auto detection or we would end up with random versions of vim, depending
on what was installed on our buildsystem at compile time.
