Actually, I was able to rebuild the src.rpm from that location on a FC4
system, but I had issues when trying to install the binary due to
conflicts between 32 bit and 64 bit OpenSSL packages (it's an AMD64
machine). It's probably trivial to work around, but I've little
experience with x86_64 distributions.

So, if your packages include the bug, could you post a fixed version

I don't know.
