pkgconfig file says "Requires glib" instead of glib-2.0

Bug #184607 reported by andi5 on 2008-01-20
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Fix Released
gconf (Ubuntu)
Ubuntu Desktop Bugs

Bug Description

Binary package hint: gconf

Version: 2.21.1-0ubuntu1
File /usr/lib/pkgconfig/gconf-2.0.pc contains the line
Requires: glib
instead of
Requires: glib-2.0

So `pkg-config --cflags gconf-2.0` returns "-DORBIT2=1 -pthread -I/usr/include/gconf/2 -I/usr/include/orbit-2.0 -I/usr/include/glib-1.2 -I/usr/lib/glib/include -I/usr/include/glib-2.0 -I/usr/lib/glib-2.0/include" with glib1 remnants.

A fix has been committed upstream at and will probably be contained in the next release 2.21.2.

This breaks compiling of at least gnucash (bug 184176) as well.
