Thanks for the report.

Do you think it will be enough to simply remove the reference?
libxenlight still depends on a blktap in the CentOS package, but it is a
different one that don't have a .pc file. It is easier to remove the
reference that to try to write a new .pc file :-).

There is xen-4.12.2-2 package that should be available in the testing
repo in a couple of hours.
