Description Marinus Schraal 2013-04-18 15:08:06 UTC
Folks has since 0.9 an optional dependency on libzeitgeist again, only its configure doesn't reflect this with a switch. It is currently part of the telepathy switch.

Since folks+telepathy is mandatory for empathy, it also pulls in zeitgeist atm.

Suggested fix is fixing its configure to make zeitgeist optional and reflect this is in the ebuild with USE=zeitgeist .

Reproducible: Always

Looks like upstream made that dep automagic when fixing:

add configure switch for zeitgeist

With my more than rusty autofu skills I managed to conjure up this abomination. Works for me, Probably too ugly for upstream as it is.

This also requires a buildtime dep on vala if USE=-zeitgeist to regenerate the c files of the telepathy backend and disable zeitgeist.
