Rahul -- this is probably my own error, then. I didn't take copious 
notes of my migration process and I'm home sick today, so it is likely 
that I'm in error here. However this has prompted me to become 
interested, once again, in how to build an rpm package according to 
Fedora guidelines ( 
), so I'm letting myself get a bit sidetracked as I play with this.
