p_tupdate is a program associated with sgi's internal source control
system called ptools. first off, you don't want this program :)
secondly, it would not help you because this script is trying to checkout
code from a server inside the sgi firewall.

create a file ".rpmmacros" in your home directory and put the following
line it it:
substituting <path_to_directory> with your path.
I am planning on restructuring the xfs rpm build to be less reliant on
sgi's internal source control once test12 goes in. for the mean time, you
can simply grab a kenrel tarball, put that into SOURCES, and create the
xfs patch your self using diff -Nur on a clean test11 tree and the xfs
