Patch fixing this bug

Description of problem: Build on ppc64(le) and AArch64 fails due missing support for these arches.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Build package on up mentioned arches

Additional info:

In attachment is patch fixing this bug. It adds missing macro constants in fcntl.h(ppc and aarch), fixes macro in ustat.h(aarch), disables sysctl related stuff on AArch64(enfile.c, listen.c), adds lyx-fonts as build dep(ppc64) and adds font cache refresh in %prep related to BZ#921706 (s390(x)). Patched package builds successfully on all arches. I will send included patch upstream.

Comment 1 Yaakov Selkowitz 2014-07-02 03:41:22 UTC
I had pretty much the same patch before I saw yours, with a few differences for better portability:

1) in explain/syscall/ustat.c:

-#ifndef HAVE_USTAT
+#if !defined(HAVE_USTAT_H) && !defined(LINUX_TYPES_H_STRUCT_USTAT)

2) in both libexplain/buffer/enfile.c and libexplain/buffer/errno/listen.c:

-#ifdef __linux__
+#ifdef SYS__sysctl

Either way, I can confirm that this does fix the build on both arches.
