I grabbed his latest 2.1-RC4 RPM packages and adapted it to FC1 and the
release 2.1pl0.

The big problem getting it to compile was with embedded %doc and
%install strings that silently caused rpmbuild to fail with a strange
error message. Deleting the % sign from the comments fixed the problem.

It appears that there are some patches included that are only
appropriate for 2.0 and not 2.1. Atleast they give a ton of patching
errors if you try to use them. The TLS patches are one of them.

I finally did get a package built and I'm playing around with it now,
but the lack of TLS is a problem for me right now. I was going to spend
some more time this weekend figuring out what needs to be done to get
Postfix 2.1 with TLS support. (I haven't been keeping up)
