Description Aleksey Nogin 1998-11-14 11:15:53 EST
I beleive it would be very helpful if RPM would allow
specifying "BuildRequires" field in a SPEC file that would
describe the programs necessary to compile this package.
That would give an easy way to specify that a package have
to be built using some specific version of gcc or some
specific version of some *-devel package.

BuildPrereq is in the process of being added to rpm-2.9x.
