I really don't think the changes warrant rebuilding dependent packages 
anyway, else we would have done that when Colin and I made pretty much 
the exact same patches yesterday.

Btw, simply adding prmjtime.h is insufficient.  There are a _bunch_ of 
header files that were missing from the old package, including about 10 
headers and the upstream .pc file.  This previously caused gjs to fail 
to build, which was needed for the Firefox 5 update.

Colin and I spent some time debugging this and pushed a fix into F15 
yesterday.  Coincidentally, it completely fixes 712304 in the most 
correct way: The old js specfile painstakingly copied individual files 
one by one into the buildroot.  We patched it to run make install 
DESTDIR=%{buildroot}.  Which means all the files that are supposed to be 
installed get installed.  This also puts the headers where they should 
be, in %{includedir}/js instead of having all of the headers direct 
children of %{includedir}!  The pc files reflect reality, so it should 
be transparent to consumers as long as they use pkg-config, which they 
ought to be doing.

We also mostly fixed 710837, though we didn't go quite as far as 
Jasper's patch.

Anyway, I'd say you should revert the fix you added for 712304.  It's 
both redundant and incorrect.

PS - I probably should have sent you a note about the fixes we did, but 
it was at the end of a very long day and gjs still didn't build until 
this morning, and then it just slipped my mind.  My bad.
