Description Pim Vullers 2011-10-25 09:02:38 UTC
In the gnome overlay app-text/gtkspell-3.0.0_pre20110814:3 is available. Pidgin does not build against this, only gtkspell-2.*. This can be solved by depending on the slotted version.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. emerge gtkspell-3
2. unmerge gtkspell-2 (depclean)
3. emerge pidgin (preserved-rebuild)
Actual Results:  
checking X11/SM/SMlib.h presence... yes
checking for X11/SM/SMlib.h... yes
checking for GTKSPELL... no
configure: error: 
GtkSpell development headers not found.
Use --disable-gtkspell if you do not need it.

Expected Results:  
Build finishes successfully.

I know this issue is caused by the gnome-overlay, but this ebuild will hit the portage tree one time. So it is better to be prepared.
