Just so the problem is 100% documented directly in bugzilla, here is a cut
and paste of the mail message linked to above:

[libXScrnSaver] Is âRequires.privateâ real ly needed?

I wanted to update gajim in Fedora Extras but libXScrnSaver-devel has broken
dependencies. `pkg-config --libs xscrnsaver' command gives this output:

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, âRequires.privateâ and
âLibs.privateâ 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? ( X11 libs in Rawhide do not provide static libs.) Here's
the proposal patch â


BTW Merry Christmas!
