UTF-8 specfiles, better upstream tarball commits coming



Hello,

I ran a few scripts on the CVS tree and will commit the resulting improvements 
in a few days to devel and rebuild changed packages if ACL's allow.  Let me 
know if you for some reason don't want your packages touched (affected package 
lists below).

1) Convert remaining non-UTF-8 specfiles to UTF-8.  This is a no-brainer.

2) A number of packages are not using the "best" _upstream_ (I'm not 
repackaging anything) tarball available that we can use.  Using the best 
available one will result in smaller srpm sizes, less downloading from CVS 
lookaside cache and upstreams etc.  I'm defining goodness in descending order 
as: xz, lzma, bz2, gz, zip, tar; and will compare tarball contents before 
making any changes.  Packages whose SourceX URLs are bad are almost certainly 
missed in this batch.  There are two scenarios where I'm going to make other 
changes besides just change the tarball in order to keep it possible for 
packagers to easily keep sharing specfiles between branches:

2a) If the tarball is going to be switched to an lzma one and the package has 
an EL-5 branch that seems relatively up to date with the devel branch, I'll 
add "BuildRequires: lzma" because while the EL-5 rpmbuild's %setup knows what 
to do with lzma tarballs, it doesn't have a dependency on lzma.

2b) If the tarball would be switched to an xz one but the package has 
relatively up to date F-10 or EL branches, I'm not going to switch the tarball 
or build at all but will add a TODO comment to the specfile noting that such a 
tarball would be available, because F-10 and EL rpmbuilds' %setup doesn't grok 
xz tarballs.
