Perhaps after we get the 2.6 tarballs ready to go, you could
take a shot at creating the spec files and anything else we might need
to build RPMs.  I'm not sure how to handle dependencies where the
dependency has a different *name* on different distributions.  Perhaps
you've run into this and have a solution.

I'd like to have RPMS for SuSE 9.3 (x86 and x86_64), Mandrake 10.1,
Mandriva 2006, and FC 4 for starters.  With Ramakrishnan covering Debian,
this would give us good coverage.
