Make pkgconfig stuff arch independent (1.04 KB, patch)

Description Ville Skyttä 2007-01-28 16:02:37 UTC
AFAIK, shared-mime-info is inherently architecture independent, and the only thing holding back distributors packaging it as such is the pkgconfig file location and some unnecessary variables in it.

Suggested fix attached.

Comment 2 Ville Skyttä 2007-01-28 16:07:58 UTC
Oops.  When saying things about arch independence, I was thinking about gnome-mime-info (update-mime-database is clearly arch dependent).  Anyway, even though it has less benefits in this case, I think the patch could still be considered.
Comment 3 Bastien Nocera 2007-02-02 07:13:13 UTC
Makes complete sense, as the pkgconfig file doesn't mention any non-portable data.

        * Makefile.am:
        * shared-mime-info.pc.in: Patch from Ville Skyttä <ville.skytta@iki.fi>
        to move the shared-mime-info pkgconfig file to $(datadir), as it doesn't
        contain any arch-specific data (Closes: #9789)
