Thanks Nathaniel.

As I mentioned elsewhere, I have just done this in Rawhide.

Basically, the upstream changes for libverto should be trivial:

- libevent installs its event.h header in /usr/include, so you can link
to that directly
- libev installs its ev.h and ev++.h in /usr/include as well, so you can
link directly to that.

And that's pretty much it, there shouldn't be anything for you to do,
except stop requiring the libev pkgconfig file (which I dropped in

With this change, libverto should then build on all distributions, as we
were (afaik) the only ones shipping a pkgconfig file for libev.

Let me know if I can help.
