- Made package arch specific due to pkgconfig files being placed in lib64
 if the noarch packages manage to get built on x86_64/ppc64/s390x.


What?

Fix the toplevel Makefile.am to install the pkgconfig file to $datadir
instead of libdir:

-pkgconfigdir = $(libdir)/pkgconfig
+pkgconfigdir = $(datadir)/pkgconfig

That's what other noarch packages do.


Alternatively, fix your spec to use

%configure --libdir=%_datadir
...
%_datadir/share/pkgconfig/*.pc

For now, the important thing is that FC5 is in a state that everything
builds, and is ready for final release.  Minor trivia like this is not
mission critical to the release of the OS.

Feel free to submit a patch to X.Org to do this, so it is fixed in
the future.



Actually, it's more important that things are in a state where upgrading works sanely. Changing from noarch -> arch-specific -> noarch typically breaks upgrading.
