Description Jon Portnoy (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-12-03 22:05:00 UTC
libwmf-0.2.7 changes the name of a library (namely, becomes which causes ImageMagick to break. Other programs that use
libwmf might also, but I haven't seen any other breakage yet. It might be good
to symlink to in the ebuild.

Recompiling ImageMagick against libwmf-0.2.7 fixes this.
Comment 1 Jonathan Nall 2002-12-05 15:25:23 UTC
this is due to libwmf using the libtool flag "-release". this flag binds
anything compiled against libwmf-0.2.6 to version 0.2.6. i've written the libwmf
maintainer to see why -release is used. as best i can tell it should not be. 

i'll update this when i hear from him.

putting this on hold. portage should soon be able to address this type of problem.
