Default koji attempting to use qt3-devel rpm rather than qt-devel on fedora 13 build root

Any suggestions on tweaks to the oprofile.spec file force it to use qt4 based qt-devel rpm would be appreciated.

Both qt3-devel and qt-devel (qt4) provide qt-devel. They also provide qt3-devel and qt4-devel respectively if you want a specific one.

Looking closer it seems the qt3-devel in f13 is providing qt-devel with an apoch of 1 while the other packages don't seem to have one which is likely why qt3-devel is being picked over qt-devel (qt4).*

We strongly recommend using qt4-devel as the BuildRequires because:
* It will keep working when Qt 5 will become the default qt-devel.
* It allows comparing versions without an Epoch (e.g. BuildRequires:
qt4-devel >= 4.7).
* It avoids this precise issue.

That said, we did fix qt3-devel to stop Providing qt-devel (which turned out
to cause more problems than it solved; the original idea was to allow apps
to use BuildRequires: qt-devel < 1:4, but BuildRequires: qt3-devel is the
better solution anyway), but that fix didn't trickle into F13 updates,
sorry.
