I'm confused by this. You're suggesting that I have the following?

 * serf0: empty
 * libserf0_0: DLL and docs
 * libserf0-devel: headers and link libraries

Why do I need serf0?

3) The devel package should also require apr1, aprutil1, openssl-devel,
and zlib, since will pull these libs in when linking with


4) IMO the libraries should be libserf0_0 and libserf0-devel.  The first
zero is part of the library name itself (, and the second
the current libtool version.

You're talking about the package names here, not the names of the *.dll, *.la, or *.a files, right?
