Description Deepak Bhole 2011-05-26 17:59:16 EDT
Since fonts cannot be enumerated without fontconfig installed, OpenJDK should depend on fontconfig in both Fedora and RHEL. 

Attached test case will yield an error, "Exception in thread "main" java.lang.Error: Probable fatal error:No fonts found.", on systems with no fontconfig installed.

On systems with fontconfig installed, the program will exit normally.

Yap. Since fontconfig  packages  are avaiable for rhel 4-6 and f13-16, there shuld be no problem to add 
"requires fontconfig" to all supporting spec-files.
Comment 6 jiri vanek 2011-06-10 09:05:59 EDT
since no exception from reproducer is considerable as proof that issue is fixed and tested  f14,15, rawhide (NOT TESTED) and Rhel 6
