Note: "permalinks" may not be as permanent as we would like,
direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.


You're using a default RPM configuration, which sets the RPM paths
somewhere below /usr/src/redhat, which you most likely don't have write
permission for.

Set up a build hierarchy in your home directory, and set your paths in
your ~/.rpmmacros file properly.

And "rpmbuild -tb", and thus make rpm, unfortunately got borked just
before the 8.3.6 release, so please build from the spec file with
"rpmbuild -bb".

Hey we did say this was not a release for general use, merely an
intermediate one for the changes in packaging. ;)
