The big question for EPEL-5 branches though is what version of the 
packages to build for MinGW. For the Fedora release & rawhide branches 
our plan was to have each MingGW build track the version + patches
of the corresponding native build.

If we apply that logic to EPEL-5, then we shouldn't be copying the
Fedora 9 mingw packages there - we should be -resyncing them to 
match the versions distributed in RHEL-5.
