I just set up a build root in my new build server with centos 4 just to
test this and managed to build lilypond (and its dependencies). I'm not
sure what may be wrong but the error looks suspiciously familiar
(meaning I hit it at some point in the past), but I don't remember when.
I'll send you the spec files I just used off the list.
