OK, so I take it that following these instructions on my machine to
rebuild the rpm should handle it? I wasn't clear on that, but it's
relatively good news. I was afraid that it was a fix that you would have
had to make to the way that you build RPMs for us there, which would
have been a ridiculous imposition.

I'll do the fix tonight and report back how it works. It might be worth
including a brief pointer to the info somewhere in the Planet CCRMA
docs, since I suspect that others may trip over it.
