Summary0002311: Package gperf dependency to build on CentOS 7
DescriptionI followed the instructions in http://source.netsurf-browser.org/netsurf.git/plain/Docs/QUICK-START to get NetSurf running. This worked except the first build attempt (ns-pull-install) failed with:

ake: Entering directory `/home/leon/dev-netsurf/workspace/libsvgtiny'
   GPERF: src/colors.gperf
make: gperf: Command not found
make: *** No rule to make target `build-x86_64-redhat-linux-x86_64-redhat-linux-release-lib-static/src_colors.c', needed by `build-x86_64-redhat-linux-x86_64-redhat-linux-release-lib-static/build-x86_64-redhat-linux-x86_64-redhat-linux-release-lib-static_src_colors.o'. Stop.
make: Leaving directory `/home/leon/dev-netsurf/workspace/libsvgtiny'

I had to install standard package 'gperf' and then it worked.
