Why does RedHat require that iniparser-devel be installed to build their 4.1.1 RPM when the source is in the tree?

Well, the included iniparser copy is only there as a band aid
for systems that don't support it. And the redhat rpm knows that
the red hat system can provide iniparser-devel, so it is only
fair to require it, right?

The SerNet RPMs do the same, btw.

Cheers - Michael
