Description of problem:
nano-1.2.1-2 in Rawhide has:
BuildPrereq: ncurses-devel gpm-devel
[temp1@build-rh80 BUILD]$ pwd
[temp1@build-rh80 BUILD]$ cd nano-1.2.1/
[temp1@build-rh80 nano-1.2.1]$ grep -r "gpm" *
BuildRequires gpm-devel seems unnecessary. No "gpm" string anywhere in the
tarball, and build is successful without gpm-devel installed. Perhaps remove
This doesn't matter much for this particular report, but Prereq and BuildPrereq
are deprecated in rpm. They still work though.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I believe it was added because ncurses-devel doesn't require gpm-devel, even
though it's linked against it. But it doesn't make much sense now. Removed, will
be in future builds.
