trying to build xserver rpm for Fedora

I am trying to build an rpm for installation of the xserver (XACE patch) 
on Fedora Core 6. I've made some progress but have run into a problem 
and I'm not sure how to proceed. I started with the server spec file 
from the FC6 cvs tree with all of the patching commented out and a 
archive of the latest XACE source.  Dmx fails to compile so in my spec 
file I changed the  define of xservers to disable dmx and set 
with_dmx_server to 0. I also had to copy comment-header-modefiles.txt to 
my ~/rpmbuild/SOURCES directory. Oh yeah I'm running 'rpmbuild -ba <spec 
file>' to do the build. Now I'm to the point where rpmbuild runs 
check-rpaths and there are rpath issues with and 
The builds of these shared libraries are adding addition rpath paths 
that check-rpaths doesn't like. I have tried to get rpmbuild to ignore 
these check-rpaths errors by setting the environment variable  QA_RPATHS 
but that didn't help as rpmbuild still failed :( Any ideas about how fix 
this problem would be greatly appreciated.
