I'm the maintainer of avahi in Mandriva. I've uploaded our first avahi
package this week, and we'll begin its integration with other apps
very soon. For now, I guess we only have ekiga build against avahi,
and banshee will be rebuilt to use avahi-sharp.
We're gonna push the compatibility libs while our desktops haven't
fully switched to avahi. Right now, we still have the howl and
mDNSResponder libraries because of some dumb package dependencies, but
it will be fixed soon.
