Thank you. Yes, you were correct. I 'assumed' that the spec files
represented the way that the RPMs were supposed to be built by the distros,
which I want to duplicate. I should have realized my mistake from the
config line - ./configure --enable-experimental. What control is there over
the components packaged into an RPM by the various distros? Is there much
variation in their content?
