There are some inconsistencies in the handling of the snappy dependency for libmongoc. The x86_64 library links to snappy, but doesn't have it as a dependency. On the other hand, the i686 version ships its own snappy library, but doesn't conflict with the snappy package. Both arches should either use the system snappy, in which case they should depend on it, or use the bundled version. in which case they should conflict with the snappy package.
This is currently breaking the build of syslog-ng
This task depends upon
