Description Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2011-08-22 08:32:57 UTC
As per summary: the EMERALD_LIBS and EMERALD_CFLAGS variables substituted in the .pc files are the expansion of what is found by Require:

The problem is that by doing this, -lpng14 is written to emeraldengine.pc and nothing will build against it until rebuilt, when updating to libpng 1.5 (and so on).

I hope I got it right.

+  14 Sep 2011; Samuli Suominen <> emerald-0.8.4-r2.ebuild,
+  +files/emerald-0.8.4-pkgconfig-pollution.patch:
+  Use Requires.private and Libs.private instead of Requires and Libs wrt
+  #380197 by Diego Elio Pettenò

Without revbump, I don't really expect emerald to cause any real problems, with only 1-2 reverse deps (likely not using the engine at all)
