Ok, great. I think that making such an rpm would indeed be
good progress. Would it be possible for you to do a "first
draft" of such an rpm? Then you could send it to me and
I could see if I understand the process and try to install
it on one of my RedHat systems.

Ok, that can be a secondary goal.

No problem. I know several people are using Axiom successfully
built from source on Suse. I think there was a significant
issue regarding clib or some such.

RPM for suse could be goal #3.

Ok, thanks. I was clearly confused.
