#4508: Libcap not found due to missing header
 Reporter:  chris@…      |      Owner:  blfs-book@…
     Type:  enhancement  |     Status:  new
 Priority:  normal       |  Milestone:  current
Component:  BOOK         |    Version:  SVN
 Severity:  normal       |   Keywords:
 Libcap 2.23 installs /usr/include/sys/capability.h, which contains the
 #include <uapi/linux/capability.h>
 That file does exist in Libcap's source, but is not installed. There is a
 <linux/capability.h>, installed by the linux-headers, which is referred to
 in the <sys/capability.h> of the previous Libcap version. I'm not sure if
 the referenced file in the uapi directory should be installed from the
 Libcap source, or if the include line should be modified to use the one in
 include/linux instead.
