Updated brltty packages that fix two bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
BRLTTY is a background process (daemon) which provides access to the Linux console (when in text mode) for a blind person using a refreshable braille display. It drives the braille display, and provides complete screen review functionality.

Bug Fixes

Previously, building the brltty package could fail on the ocaml's unpackaged files error. This happened only if the ocaml package was pre-installed in the build root. The "--disable-caml-bindings" option has been added in the %configure macro so that the package now builds correctly.
Previously, the /usr/lib/ symbolic link installed by the brlapi-devel package incorrectly pointed to ../../lib/ The link has been fixed to correctly point to ../../lib/
All users of brltty are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs.
