7.93. json-c

Updated json-c packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
JSON-C implements a reference counting object model that allows users to easily construct JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) objects in C, output them as JSON formatted strings, and parse JSON formatted strings back into the C representation of JSON objects.

Bug Fix

The pkg-config (.pc) files for JSON-C were incorrectly placed in the /lib64/pkgconfig/ directory in the 64-bit packages and in the /lib/pkgconfig/ directory in the 32-bit packages. Consequently, the pkg-config tool was unable to find these files and failed to provide the location of the installed JSON-C libraries, header files, and other information about JSON-C. With this update, the pkg-config files have been moved to the /usr/lib64/pkgconfig/ and /usr/lib/pkgconfig/ directory respectively. As a result, the pkg-config tool now successfully returns information about the installed JSON-C packages.
Users of JSON-C are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
