FWIW, the old deltarpm web page died a while ago, but the source for
official releases has always been available at
ftp://ftp.suse.com/pub/projects/deltarpm/deltarpm-3.4.tar.bz2 (and
that's been the source tag in the spec file up until I branched off of
the new git repo last week).

I'll go ahead and fix the spec file to show where I'm getting the
current source.  Sorry about the mistake.
