Summary: Please drop control-center-pangoxft.patch
Product: openSUSE 10.3
Version: Alpha 1
Platform: All
OS/Version: All
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: GNOME
AssignedTo: bnc-team-gnome-build@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

control-center-pangoxft.patch is a really old and obsolete workaround for a
build failure with gtk2 >= 2.8.

Earlier versions of gtk2 used to expose pangoxft in their .pc files. Packages
like control-center2 incorrectly relied on this and started to fail when the
references to pangoxft could no longer be resolved.

This has been fixed upstream by removing all references to pangoxft. The patch
doesn't do anything useful other than creating an unnecessary dependency!
