Description Michael Schwendt 2010-07-01 06:40:15 EDT
is missing
BuildRequires: binutils-static



If a library you depend on only provides a static version your package can link against it provided that you BuildRequire the *-static subpackage. Packagers in such a situation should be aware that if a shared library becomes available, that you should adjust your package to use the shared library.
Comment 1 Lucian Langa 2010-07-01 11:05:23 EDT
I'm pretty confused here,
binutils-devel was merged in binutils-static now binutils-static has been renamed to binutils-devel. Isn't now the same think using BR binutils-devel ?
Comment 2 Michael Schwendt 2010-07-01 14:26:36 EDT
binutils-devel enforces static linking via ld scripts (in the *.so files). So, as long as you can only link statically with binutils' libs, the quoted packaging guidelines ask you to BuildRequires binutils-static (even if binutils-devel currently gives you the same package). This is for tracking-purposes.
