It is an upstream decision to ship that fuse-lite fork in the tarball and to 
support it. It is a Fedora decision to actually use this fork rather than 
using --with-fuse=external. (In many cases, we even _patch_ upstream projects 
to use system libraries where they don't support it at all, in this case, it 
would just be a configure option.) I'm complaining about both.
