I wanted to update gajim in Fedora Extras but libXScrnSaver-devel has
broken dependencies. `pkg-config --libs xscrnsaver' command gives this
Package x11 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `x11.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
Package 'x11', required by 'XScrnSaver', not found
Before reporting this in Bugzilla I wanted to ask about one question.
/usr/lib/pkgconfig/xscrnsaver.pc file contains this line:
Requires.private: x11 xext
If I understand pkg-config's manpage correctly, “Requires.private” and
“Libs.private” are only needed in the case of static linking. Am I
right? If yes, maybe it would be better to comment this line out to not
to add unnecessary dependency bloat? (X.org X11 libs in Rawhide do not
provide static libs.) Here's the proposal patch →
BTW Merry Christmas!
