Fellow Arch Enthusiasts,

I noticed a problem with the ruby-python package in aur/community and 
added a comment to it.  But, then I started wondering if I should have 
have flagged it as out of date or filed a bug instead.  So, I thought I'd 
ask for future reference.

The package isn't exactly out of date.  It's built against the current 
version of the available sources according to the project's web site, 
although the sources don't appear to have been updated since 2005.  The 
postgres.so library file included in the ruby-postgres binary package is 
linked against libpq.so.4.  The current postgresql-libs package contains 
libpq.so.5, so the package just needs to be rebuilt to link against the 
current libs.  Also, I got an error trying to download the source tarball 
from the source URL in the PKGBUILD file.  The source tarball is available 
via the package's main website.

Does Arch have a utility similar to Gentoo's revdep-rebuild utility that 
scans all the libraries/binaries on the system for missing dependencies?
