Just a heads-up, I'm (finally) enabling the generation of automatic

already have  the needed provides for satisfying the new requires.

But if you see unsatisfied dependencies on pkgconfig(foo) and
libtool(foo), request a rebuild of the dependant package, that's all
it  should take. Except if you happen to hit a big chain of
pkg-config using  packages that haven't been rebuilt in several
months, or bugs in the  dependency generation, or buggy pkg-config
.pc files...

A recent build of gtkpod failed to install libgpod-develĀ¹, 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?

Bug in rpm pkgconfig generation, see https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=473814
