New Description:

libalpm links to many additional libraries in pacman-3.5 compared to pacman-3.4.


Old Description:
pacman 3.5.0 only depends on libarchive 2.8.0 which causes breakage if you do a full system upgrade after a fresh install as xz had a soname bump and pacman requires "liblzma.so.5" (whereas the xz-utils package libarchive 2.8.0 depends on only provides "liblzma.so.0"). Please ensure we pull in xz-5.x.0 to ensure pacman doesn't break.

Additional info:
* pacman 3.5.0


Steps to reproduce:

Would be nice if that would be fixed before we move pacman to [core].

does libalpm really needs to link to liblzma.so.5 ? pacman 3.4 only links to libarchive

Ionut: Right, `git bisect`'ed that one. Seems like this was introduced with commit f489e969 [1], when upgrading autotools (was kinda obvious). This is a huge patch set tho and I don't have enough time to figure out where this originates from. Maybe Dan can keep track of that.

Just another evil cross-link for reference: http://mailman.archlinux.org/pipermail/pacman-dev/2011-March/012684.html

Maybe we should rename this bug or open another one as this bug's original description doesn't really outline the actual root of the problem.
