Re: possible bug in RPM build process?

I see Einhverfr already updated the build.sh file for the rpm's -
which saves me generating a patch file.

Just to confirm - I remembered I still had a RHEL6 development box
kicking around which I was using a few months ago to build a bunch of
Xen4 packages, which has a newer version of rpm, so I used that to do:

> rpmbuild --rebuild ledgersmb-1.3.11-1.src.rpm  --define "_source_filedigest_algorithm 0" \
               --define "_binary_filedigest_algorithm 0"

The resulting binary rpm package installs with no complaints on both
Centos5 and Centos6.

I'll carry on working through and documenting a process for rpm-based
installation - my target platform is still Centos5 for now.

Thanks, and I'll pass on any further issues along the way.
