A recent build of gtkpod failed to install libgpod-devel┬╣, which
requires pkgconfig(gobject-2.0).  Shouldn't glib2-devel provide that?
It's certainly been rebuilt recently, yet the only pkgconfig provides
it has is pkgconfig(glib-2.0).  The latest glib2-devel package has a
number of .pc files though:

$ rpm -qpl glib2-devel-2.19.1-2.fc11.i386.rpm | grep '\.pc$'

So, is this a bug in the libgpod packaging or in the rpm pkgconfig
provides stuff?
