Description Jim Radford 2002-12-06 21:24:58 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20021003

Steps to Reproduce:

 pkg-config --libs xft

should say that it can't find dependency fontconfig which is in fontconfig-devel.

Comment 1 Mike A. Harris 2002-12-08 12:46:16 UTC
I don't really see the problem.  If you're linking just with Xft, then
your app isn't using fontconfig directly.  If you are using fontconfig
directly, then your app should BuildRequires: fontconfig-devel

Owen, comment?

Comment 2 Owen Taylor 2002-12-08 15:18:16 UTC
You definitely want this Requires: ... Xft.h includes fontconfig.h, so 
even if you never use a single constant from fontconfig.h you
need the fontconfig-devel package.

Comment 3 Mike A. Harris 2002-12-11 18:16:31 UTC
Verified.  There was a Requires "fontconfig" there, I've changed it to
fontconfig-devel now, which has a dep on fontconfig.

Fixed in 20021210.1 in rawhide
