[opensuse-packaging] RFC: Banning system library paths from .pc files
  • From: Philipp Thomas <pth@xxxxxxx>

https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=529921 shows why encoding system
library paths like /usr/lib and /usr/lib64 in pkgconfig files is a very bad
idea indeed.

I'd propose to add a brp script that checks for -L%{libdir} in .pc files
and fails the package if found. That way maintainers of a package that comes
with .pc files would be forced to fix their packages. I'd even volunteer to
write said brp script.
