OK, here's the explanation for why this behavior is happening to Jeff.
He's using an older version of RPM (4.6, I believe). Newer versions of
rpmbuild automatically detect library dependencies from the built
binaries and create the appropriate dependency on the resulting RPM,
without being specified explicitly.
However, older versions of RPM do not have this autodetection
capability, and so Jeff's build from 'core' is missing this feature.
Actually, I am using: rpm-4.6.1-3.fc10. It properly added a dep on
libsemanage.so.6, but I thought a new dependency should be explicit vs
implicit sort of like the zen of python. Perhaps I was wrong in
thinking this but it is a bit annoying to not see a dep like that when
staring at the spec file. No worries either way as this patch is very
I'm rescinding my ack on this, as the upstream contrib RPM is
be a reference only for supported versions of Fedora, and all
currently-supported Fedora releases support the autodetection correctly.
This fix will, however, go in as a custom change to the EPEL5 version of
SSSD, as it will be necessary there.
Delivering value year after year.
