And since I just added a small check for library-less -devel packages
to the -static checker script:
* oprofile : it builds a library-less oprofile-devel sub-package for just
a single header file (5122 bytes), i.e. it splits off this single file
That's the arbitrariness I refer to. Installation footprint here certainly
is not the reason for this packaging style.
Good however is that is adds a virtual oprofile-static package definition
in the oprofile-devel package. ;-)
