I tried to rebuild yelp and devhelp.
They both fail with an error that surprises me and I don't understand.

When attempting to build yelp, it fails complaining "Error: Missing 
Dependency: gecko-libs = is needed by package yelp" ( is 
the old one).

The new yelp.spec is set to require gecko-libs

The build log indicates that it's pulling in (new) gecko-libs, 
and there is no error, so I conclude that works.

Why this attempt to pull in the old yelp and the old gecko-libs?

Thanks in advance for your help,
