The current openimageio package build its own fmtlib and cause conflicts if you try to use fmtlib and openimageio in your own project because openimageio will pull its fmt dependency on top. The fix is simple: add -DBUILD_MISSING_FMT=OFF to the cmake build options and add fmt as a dependency. As for pugixml, the same could be done with -DUSE_EXTERNAL_PUGIXML=ON, however it does not work currently and I made a pull request upstream ( to make it work.

It also "git clone"s ( ) and pybind11 during the cmake configure stage (in addition to fmtlib). These should be devendored too...

I added to [community-testing] with the suggested changes. Please have a look.

Like Eli said, it would be good to do the same with robin-map with option -DBUILD_MISSING_ROBINMAP=OFF. For pybind11, it should be fine as is. It is supposed to find and use the system one if it exists. That aside, it's looking good.

I checked the compile time output and I believe we don't need -DBUILD_MISSING_ROBINMAP=OFF. Also, I took removed git from the makedeps and nothing failed during build time so I believe we're good.
