The build works fine, it's the "Makepkgs" that I think is a bit odd,
at least for RPM packaging.

Also, if we really want to encourage packaging, we should probably start
sticking official version numbers on it.  "1.1.1" was tagged in Dec 2012,
and there have been no "releases" since.

Ok, cool, I'll take a look at the specfile & patch.  I had also packaged
it up for our internal QA use long ago, and had to make a few changes
as well.
