As an aside, in cases like this, where there's a circular
BuildRequires dependency between two (or more) packages A and B, what
you'd ideally like in many situation is that the built packages for A
have a Requires: B >= %{version}-%{release} , where the version and
release are the ones actually built against. Is there any way to do
set version and release for this requires at package build time? The
only way I can see of doing it is by querying rpm during building.
That always seems to make people jump up and down though.:) Is there
another, less fragile way?
