Description Michael Schwendt 2010-07-20 15:27:05 UTC
eclipse-oprofile-0.6.0-1.fc14.src
is missing
BuildRequires: binutils-static

[...]

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:Guidelines#Packaging_Static_Libraries_2

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 Andrew Overholt 2010-07-27 12:44:12 UTC
It looks like binutils now provides -devel and not -static:

Comment 2 Michael Schwendt 2010-07-27 13:08:34 UTC
binutils-devel provides binutils-static with FESCo's permission,

because it still uses ld scripts to link statically.
