Right. And because yours is the exceptionnal case, there is no reason for
the distribution to bend over to accomodate you.
Building external modules is a dangerous and intrusive operation - you
should not do it if you do not know what you're doing, and that includes
understanding a minimum your distribution inner workings - of which rpm is
a key part.
I find it rather strange that after claiming you have to maintain several
systems running Fedora you display such a strong aversion to rpm. rpm is
the core tech used to ease (multiple) software deployments on rpm-based
distributions. If you can't stand Fedora's way of managing software, why
the heck are you running several FC instances in the first place ?
