the script itself is generated during the build 
(setup_native/unxlngx6/bin/install), because it contains a fake RPM 
database binary blob; i have attached the one from my build, hopefully 
that makes it to the list...

surprisingly nobody had adapted this to 64bit yet, so i had to fix that:

also it turned out that we currently do not write the intended library 
requires into the 2 packages that actually have meaningful ones, because 
of a change in RPM itself; fixed that also:

hopefully you should be able to install RPMs that have been built with 
the second of these fixes included; it worked for me.

oh, another problem that could affect you is that Stephan Bergmann has 
restructured the installation sets to remove the "basis" layer; perhaps 
something still needs to be adapted for e.g. deb packages.
