Description Andrew Elwell 2012-02-27 04:34:52 EST
Description of problem:
iptables-devel installs a circular link to libiptc.so, 
libip4tc.so, libip6tc.so

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install iptables-devel
2. readelf -Ws /lib64/libip4tc.so
Actual results:
readelf: Error: Could not locate '/lib64/libip4tc.so'.  System error message: Too many levels of symbolic links

Expected results:
Listing of exported symbols

Additional info:
It looks like harald has already prepared a patch for this (and other hard coded path removal) at http://harald.fedorapeople.org/downloads/usrmove/iptables-usrmove.patch

It's related to the rawhide /lib64 -> /usr/lib64 move anyway. 

Main problem is in the .spec file 
-# create symlinks for devel so libs
-install -d -m 755 %{buildroot}%{_libdir}
-for i in %{buildroot}/%{_lib}/*.so; do
-    ln -s ../../%{_lib}/${i##*/} %{buildroot}%{_libdir}/${i##*/}
-# move pkgconfig to %{_libdir}
-mv %{buildroot}/%{_lib}/pkgconfig %{buildroot}/%{_libdir}/

(I've got a similar patch to that of harald to work)
