Description of problem:
libusb-config is missing from libusb-devel. Perhaps this was a deliberate choice? As far as I understand, all the same relevant information can be obtained with pkg-config, but some other packages use libusb-config at the configuration stage, e.g., gpsbabel (see Additional info, below).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. enter libusb-config at the command prompt
bash: libusb-config: command not found
libusb-config can be used to obtain linking information and flags for libusb
# rpm -ql libusb-devel | grep config
As far as I can tell, libusb-config is not available in any package available in standard repositories for Fedora 15:
yum provides */libusb-config
No Matches found
I found this issue when trying to use gpsbabel with a USB device. Under Fedora 14 this worked, but under Fedora 15 I get:
USB support is not available in this build.
When configuring gpsbabel 1.4.2 from source, detection of libusb fails (although ./configure succeeds) because of the absence of libusb-config:
checking for libusb... checking for libusb-config... false
I just wanted to report the same issue. This is a regression.
This has been introduced with:
adding libusb-config back to the package allows me to rebuild the gpsbabel rpm with usb support.
I just wrote a mail to Hans Ulrich Niedermann who seems to be maintaining gpsbabel, which is rendered useless to me by this issue.
Sorry, I've missed that. libusb-config is back in libusb-0.1.3-8.fc15
libusb-0.1.3-8.fc15 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 15.

@Jan could you rebuilt gpsbable which was broken by this?
@Felix, I don't have permissions to do that. I created separate bug 715220 on gpsbabel, you were added to CC. I suppose the maintainers will react soon.
libusb-config works again after updating with libusb-0.1.3-9.fc15. Fixed for me. Thanks!
libusb-0.1.3-9.fc15 has been pushed to the Fedora 15 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
