Summary: Review Request: synfig - Synfig is a vector based 2D animation package

1* URL: please rip off /Main_Page from the url in the case they change the name,
http://synfig.org/ should be enough.

2* BuildRequires - it is usually better to use one line by requirement, so the
BR would be versioned and changes can be seen easily via our cvs. But I leave
this up to you.

3* Remove: Requires:       pkgconfig, ImageMagick

4* %description : Remove the added space from the beginning of the line:
 high dynamic range images, and a flexible plugin system.

5* %package devel
 - BuildRequires is a wrong item from a -devel package, you should only use
 - pkgconfig is already provided by ETL-devel, no need to add it twice
 - synfig.pc has Requires:  OpenEXR ETL libxml++-2.6 sigc++-2.0
 you have to add all theses requires using the package name form.
 - Requires:       synfig and %{name} = %{version}-%{release} are the same
requirement, please remove synfig and use %{name} = %{version}-%{release}
(versionned requires), instead.

6* Prevent timestramps changes for installed headers. Use:
 make install DESTDIR=$RPM_BUILD_ROOT INSTALL="install -p"

7* Again, please remove theses lines: (unneeded)
%post devel -p /sbin/ldconfig
%postun devel -p /sbin/ldconfig

8* %doc README doc/ - Theses doc are installed twice (in main and -devel)
if the documentation is big, you may need to split into a separate package.
It also depend if this is development related doc or user doc.

9* Do we really need this file ? ltdl should take care of the available module
%config(noreplace) %{_sysconfdir}/synfig_modules.cfg
can you see where the file (and it's path) is written within the source code ?
At least I don't expect this file is aimed for user edition, so you may need to
only use %config in this case.

10* %{_bindir}/synfig-config same tweak is required from the ETL-config
you will need to keep the timestramps from a reference file using something like
touch -r README $RPM_BUILD_ROOT%{_bindir}/synfig-config (same for ETL-config )

11* mod_imagemagick, mod_magickpp, mod_mng and mod_gradient seems not to have
been built. (mod_libavcodec is expected). you need to figure out why.

vImage ---------------------------> no
ImageMagick ----------------------> no
Magick++ -------------------------> no
Using OpenEXR's "half" type ------> no

Look at the config.log to see missing BR or wrong directory search paths for
library detection.
