Description Thomas Vander Stichele 2002-07-11 12:10:10 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.5 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20020606

Description of problem:
libxml2 is compiled with zlib support, so when developing apps using libxml2 the
xml2-config script pulls in -lz.
So when compiling apps without zlib-devel installed this will fail.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install a fresh system with only standard develtools, libxml2-devel,
   but no zlib-devel
2. write a simple app using libxml2
3. pull in xml2 LIBS and CFLAGS using xml2-config and try to compile

Actual Results:  it fails because of libz-devel missing

Expected Results:  libxml2-devel should require zlib-devel so that linking succeeds.

Additional info:

Maybe it'd be a good idea to also check if libxml2 buildrequires: zlib-devel,
and I don't know if this is the right policy, but maybe libxml2 itself should
also require zlib.
