Yeah, it should be. (with krb5-libs too)

I did this to make the copying easier (since this application set
doesn't have any concept of "make install"), but now that I'm cutting
out all the "included" packages that it was using (its own copy of zlib,
curl, libxml2), its as easy (easier even) to not do it like this.

Good point. I'll -p those.

New opendap packages (much smaller, much faster to build) which
incorporate all of Ed's and Michael's suggestions:
SPEC: http://www.auroralinux.org/people/spot/review/opendap.spec
SRPM:http://www.auroralinux.org/people/spot/review/opendap-3.4.4-2.src.rpm

Please sponsor or point out blockers. :)

Thanks,
