It is true that probably it's not worth the effort. Thank you anyway

So, I did a check, and all of those will rebuild except wcslib.  So
wcslib will need a bit of work.  It builds on i686 but not x86_64.

When you say you want to fix the bugs.  are you meaning apply some
patches, or update to a newer version?
If it's just applying patches, and leaving the library the same
version, you wouldn't need to rebuild anything.

Those bugs have been there for 9 years, and EPEL6 is going to be
retired in 7 months.  Is it going to be worth the effort?

I don't have time until mid week (wednesday I believe).
If you decide it's worth the effort, and nobody else has volunteered,
I could give it a try.
