  Ok. This will not be one of the easy updates, as sagemath 5.9
besides not changing much "build requires" from sagemath 5.8,
had a lot of refactoring on the key portions of the rpm package

  If it works for sagemath 5.8, updating for sagemath 5.9 should
be trivial.

  This is fine, feel free to rebuild sagemath 5.8 in rawhide if you
think it is required to avoid breakage for some time/days. If
everything goes fine, I will add your patch to the sagemath 5.9
