[PlanetCCRMA] Getting up to date

I had stuff like that when I was building my patched ALSA stuff - obviously
it's a matter of kernel/alsa kernel compatibilities and architectures and
such - there's so many different versions of everything, what with building
for different architectures

my brain still doesn't keep track of it all too well - I ended up sort of
starting from scratch, making sure to have the same arcitectures and
such...I'm sure Fernando and others more knowledgeable will chime in but I
know 2.4.20-20.1.caps.rh90 and 2.4.20-20.1.caps.rh90-i686 are two different
entities and if one thing is built with the former in mind and another with
the latter, they won't like eachother - but isn't it relatively easy to work
around this by editing the .spec file?

sorry if I'm not very clear just now I'm not in my tech head :)
