I hope I did not rain on your parade, but I have submitted pstoedit in the
Fedora QA bugzilla. This is a great app, which can work as a plug-in to
gsview 4.x. See: https://bugzilla.fedora.us/show_bug.cgi?id=1440
You packaged pstoedit without libEMF? Without libEMF, you can't write WMF,
and that was the whole point (for me, at least).
libEMF is busted building on Fedora-1 (properly) , even with gcc
poached from other distros. Needs some massaging and it is an abandoned
project AFAICT. I would be curious to see if it can be made to work
properly on FC-1 and FC-2..
libEMF needed only minor patches. I have fed them back to libEMF author, who
approved of them.
I will try to submit, but if you're in a hurry I can post spec files and
patches to all 3 packages here.
