Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 64249
Magick*-config should be in devel package
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:02 EDT
Description of Problem:
In ImageMagick's base package, /usr/X11R6/bin/Magick-config and /usr/X11R6/bin/Magick++-config are delivered. IMHO, this is a bit misleading, as they are only really good for _developing_ something with ImageMagick. They should therefore be in ImageMagick-devel.
A side effect is that programs using libMagick may try to compile with Magick-config's output info, but fail due to missing installment of ImageMagick-devel.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. try to build an app which relies on the ImageMagick libs (i.e. on ImageMagick-devel), such as autotrace.
./configure finds Magick-config, and possibly relies on its result (e.g. "Magick-config --cflags" or "Magick-config --libs").
Build should fail due to missing Magick-config, not to missing (but expected) header files or libs.
