That seems to be great.  Thanks for the tip John.  When i run the
"makerpms.sh" I get this error:
checking whether or not getgroups returns EGID too many times... yes
checking whether struct passwd has pw_comment... no
checking whether struct passwd has pw_age... no
checking for poptGetContext in -lpopt... no
checking whether to use included popt... ./popt
checking configure summary... configure: error: summary failure. Aborting
Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.11664 (%build)
[root at heatconlinux OpenLinux]#

Any ideas on what the error is and how to fix it?
