Description Rex Dieter 2012-05-03 09:26:33 EDT
libgpod2's %_libdir/pkgconfig/libgpod.pc file currently contains
Requires: glib-2.0 >= 2.8.0 gobject-2.0 gdk-pixbuf-2.0 libimobiledevice-1.0

which results in all those needlessly getting linked into all pkg-config-using
target apps (even when not linking statically).  I noticed this while helping do a libimobiledevice mass-rebuild awhile back.

I'd suggest patching this to be
Requires.private: glib-2.0 >= 2.8.0 gobject-2.0 gdk-pixbuf-2.0 libimobiledevice-1.0
instead (perhaps for rawhide only, reducing this linking may expose
underlinking bugs in target apps)
