Re: yum-builddep pulling in i386 packages for x86_64 -devel dependencies

More like 2%.
That doesn't make me feel better unless there's some pretty clear rule
for figuring out which packages are the 2%.  Right at the moment it
seems to me that *any* BuildRequires is vulnerable, because a SRPM by
definition has no library dependencies.  Please explain why it's not.

If foo-devel requires foo, due to libfoo.so being a symlink to libfoo.so.3,
the architecture is already tracked.

If foo-devel reqires bar-devel, it is not.


gcc suffers the same issue with glibc-devel.
