Customer has reported incorrect package dependencies for libcurl5.
The issue is that libcurl5 recommends curl-certs.   This gets translated into a requires on curl-certs, but curl-certs is not produced by the build.    

The discussion captured under Yocto Bug 5204 "meta/recipes-support/curl/ install dependency fails ?" reads:

I see two problems here:

- curl-certs is an empty package. there's nothing out of FILES_${PN}-certs = "${datadir}/curl/curl-*"

- there's NO dependency between curl and curl-certs. libcurl _recommends_ curl-certs:

RRECOMMENDS_lib${BPN} += "${PN}-certs"

but I can't find any place where curl is declared to _depend_ on curl-certs.

Are there two different bugs in one here?

Steps to Reproduce

-bash-3.2# rpm -qR libcurl5-7.24.0-r9.atom
libgpg-error0(atom) >= 1.10
