--- Comment #5 from Earnie Boyd <earnie at users dot sourceforge.net> ---
Gdb also installs libbfd, libiberty and libopcodes all three are private
libraries.  Only libbfd adds a guard to protect against not having an autoconf
config.h included before it.  Why are these private development libraries being
installed into publicly used space?  Should they not remain private to the
package and require being configured and compiled?  It isn't like the package
will check to see if the library exists in public, on the contrary it will
always use the in-source versions without an option to do otherwise.

So the bug with the packages is the installation of the private libraries into
public space.
