Description Robert Scheck 2007-03-12 21:08:57 UTC
Description of problem:
Python buildrequires gdbm-devel and db4 - really needed? Personally, I would 
suggest, when db4 support is available, there's no need for gdbm support? If 
you agree with me, please remove gdbm build requirement. Perl package in Fedora 
dropped gdbm support already some time ago in favor of db4 as it seems.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Actual results:
Python buildrequires gdbm-devel and db4.

Expected results:
Drop gdbm-devel if not needed (should be deprecated by db4?)
