Description Ulrich Drepper 2012-05-31 18:10:53 EDT
Description of problem:
The pkgconfig information in /usr/lib*/pkgconfig/valgrind.pc contains the variable


This was replaced in the valgrind sources from the @VALT_LOAD_ADDRESS@ configure value.  Nowadays valgrind defines @VALT_LOAD_ADDRESS_PRI@ and @VALT_LOAD_ADDRESS_SEC@.  The old variable is not defined anymore and therefore

  pkg-config --variable=valt_load_address valgrind



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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install valgrind-devel
2.Run 'pkg-config --variable=valt_load_address valgrind'
Actual results:

Expected results:
Some address

Additional info:
There are two ways to fix this.  Either use VALT_LOAD_ADDRESS_PRI as the value for valt_load_address or introduce two values valt_load_address_pri and vlt_load_address_sec.

The same problem is present in Fedora 16.
