Description Paul Howarth 2012-04-05 15:07:00 EDT
perl-DBI has a buildreq of perl(SQL::Statement) >= 1.28, which is used in the test suite if available. However, SQL::Statement itself requires DBI, so this creates a circular build dependency, which will be a problem when we come to build everything for perl 5.16. Suggested fix is to not buildrequire SQL::Statement when bootstrapping:

diff --git a/perl-DBI.spec b/perl-DBI.spec
index 0dc2f0c..3039553 100644
--- a/perl-DBI.spec
