Re: Unwanted RPM dependencies

The problem is that if this were made optional, then they wouldn't be

Heh, I didn't consider this problem...


Generally
speaking, this is a problem that could really do with some people
looking into a solution as it happens more and more... and the hacks are
not entirely ideal.  Ideas to rpm-maint-list rpm org :)

How does the "competition" handle it in the first place?
I mean, dpkg, emerge, portage...

 - hal depends on cryptsetup-luks (containing bulky 1.2MB
   static binary in /sbin)

cryptsetup-luks should drop its static binary and move libcryptsetup to
be in /%{_lib} instead of %{_libdir}

Definitely.  Who could do this?
